WALK INTO THE SEA: DANNY WILLIAMS AND THE WARHOL FACTORY, A

Features new footage of Warhol, Edie Sedgwick and what may be the earliest known film of The Velvet Underground. In 1966, Danny Williams, Andy Warhol's lover and a permanent fixture at the Warhol Factory, disappeared. Williams had been living life in the fast lane, documenting the goings-on at the Factory with his camera and falling in and out with the other artists. Thirty-four years later, his niece Esther Robinson discovered the existence of over 20 never-before-seen films he made at the Factory and, in the process, exposed an over-looked genius. This documentary recounts her search to uncover what happened to the uncle she never knew. Winner of Best Documentary at this year's Berlin Film Festival.
