A Walk Into the Sea:
Danny Williams & the Warhol Factory
Director:
Esther B. Robinson


Synopsis:
Director Esther Robinson's personal inquiry into the truth behind her Uncle Danny Williams' mysterious 1966 disappearance. Virtually unknown today, Williams was Andy Warhol's lover and a promising young filmmaker. The discovery of 20 never-before-seen films Williams made during his time at the Factory-- and whose many subjects include Andy Warhol, Edie Sedgwick, Paul Morrissey, Brigid Berlin, Billy Name and what may be the earliest known footage of the Velvet Underground-- reveals a luminous talent and a stark gap in the historical record.  Combined with Robinson's intimate interviews of surviving Factory members, the film gets beyond the icons and quietly dismantles the Warhol myth-making machine, allowing a deeper examination of the human fragility on which Andy Warhol's empire was built.
