Todd Haynes docu announcement

Post by Sheila Klein » 04 Jun 2021 00:09

Hello!

We are excited to share the great news that The Velvet Underground will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month. We very much look forward to the opportunity for you all to watch the film which will play at a handful of festivals in the fall before its premiere theatrically and on AppleTV+ later this year.

We will keep you informed as the dates become firm for future screenings as well as other news as it materializes. We are thrilled that the film will soon be accessible to audiences around the world!

All the best,
Team VU

Sigh, was supposed to be on Apple TV this summer.

This says the Apple TV date is now in October:

It says Apple TV 'landed' the deal in October. Which I assume refers to them securing distribution rights back in October (of last year). No mention of when it will be aired, that I could see. Of course, if it has been selected for Cannes in July, then I guess it will shown after that.

Ah - you're right. I misread it. Still won't be surprised if it doesn't make it to AppleTV until October (or later).

DEADLINE: The Velvet Underground’s official albums are endlessly being repackaged. Is there any rare or unheard music?

HAYNES: There is. Most of the material of live performances and demos have been released over the years, but there were rehearsal tapes we got from [Reed’s widow] Laurie Anderson that are remarkable. We use some of that in the film. There are live tapes of Lou Reed performing his lyrics at poetry readings in 1970 in New York that are so beautiful to hear. And then there were recordings of conversations that Danny Fields, a colleague of Lou Reed, gave us, where he was talking with him, somebody he really trusted, which was different to how he would behave with journalists. And we also found some videotape footage of the band in 1968, performing after John Cale had left the band. Stuff that has never, I don’t believe, ever been publicly seen before.

There weren't many shows in 68 after John left so that will be very interesting! Cleveland? Boston?
