As a tribute to the great pop artist and his multiples, Michael Bielicky films Andy Warhol portraits and edits them by exploiting the first digital video techniques: timebase correction and drop-out compensation. The partly disturbing, partly iconic content of the Warhol originals is replaced by distorting techniques. The technique is pushed to the fore before the image content, even before the content itself.
