The Velvet Underground

  •   Todd Haynes
  •   United States

The Velvet Underground created a new sound that changed the world of rock and roll and made Lou Reed famous for his distinctive lyrics and attitude. Acclaimed filmmaker Todd Haynes (Velvet Goldmine, I’m Not There) shows how the group grew out of the New York City underground scene to become a cultural touchstone and groundbreaking musical force. Weaving together clips from the avant-garde cinema of Andy Warhol and Jack Smith with a treasure trove of never-before-seen images and wry interviews with band members including John Cale and Moe Tucker, Haynes’ The Velvet Underground is a mesmerizing, immersive journey into the artistic explosions of the early ’60s and one of the most influential bands of all time.
