Ed Lachman’s SONGS FOR DRELLA Is Available To Stream EXCLUSIVELY On MUBI In UK & Ireland From 17 April 2022
MUBI, the theatrical distributor and global curated film streaming service is pleased to announce that Ed Lachman’s long-lost Songs for Drella will be available to stream exclusively on MUBI in the UK and Ireland from 17 April 2022.
Long after The Velvet Underground had broken up, Lou Reed and John Cale reunited to perform their album “Songs for Drella” dedicated to Andy Warhol in this evocative concert film by legendary cinematographer Ed Lachman – playing exclusively on MUBI. Written and recorded three years after Warhol’s death, the album reflects their complicated memories of their late collaborator, ‘‘Drella’’ – Warhol’s nickname – a synthesis of Dracula and Cinderella.
Intimate and minimalist, Lachman’s camerawork reflects the elemental, stripped-down qualities of the album, with close-ups beautifully conveying the deep, fractious history between Reed and Cale. Long considered lost, the original negatives were rediscovered by Lachman whilst researching Todd Haynes’s The Velvet Underground (2021).
