Bolex Study #1: A Call and Response with Warhol's Blow Job
16mm b/w reversal, silent 2.5 minutes, 2008
a film by Malic Amalya
Andy Warhol's 1964 film Blow Job is a 35 minute shot of a man's head and shoulders as, the title suggests, he receives a blow job. Confined to the Bolex's spring-wound clockwork motor and a 100ft roll of film, Bolex Study #1 supplies the missing half of Warhol's film.
