Pity Party Film Club presents a screening of Mary Harron’s 1996 debut, I Shot Andy Warhol.

Mary Harron has made movies about power-crazed murderers (American Psycho) and iconic sex symbols (The Notorious Bettie Page), but her first feature took in both subjects at once. In June 1968, Valerie Solanas shot Andy Warhol, America’s most famous artist. Harron’s film follows the entry of this fascinating woman into Warhol’s rarified inner circle: Paul Morrissey, Viva, Gerard Malanga, and Candy Darling (Stephen Dorff).

Lili Taylor is magnetic as Solanas, an unhinged, paranoid figure who also happened to be a major, influential voice in the history of radical feminism.
