Notes on Marie Menken

Rated NR 97 minutes 2007

"Notes on Marie Menken" explores the almost forgotten story of the legendary artist Marie Menken (1909 - 1970) who became one of New York's outstanding underground experimental filmmakers of the 1940s through the1960s, inspiring artists such as Stan Brakhage, Andy Warhol, Jonas Mekas, Kenneth Anger, and Gerard Malanga. She was a probable role model of Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" and ended up as a Warhol Superstar. The documentary allows a glimpse into her social and artistic struggle and radical integrity, drawing the picture of a modern myth in personal diary style.
