Haircut (No. 1)
There were actually three Haircut films. These have been numbered by the Whitney Museum of Art as part of their Andy Warhol Project. The idea for HAIRCUT NO. 1 originated from Billy Name's "haircutting salons" that he held in his apartment on the lower east side of Manhattan. The silent film was not actually filmed in Billy's apartment. It took place in a vast loft with key lighting from a single spot. The six 100 foot rolls of film shot for HAIRCUT NO. 1 were each shot from a different angle, with each shot carefully framed with dramatically different lighting.
This film is part of the „Silent Program“
