The Duel

Producer: Donald Rosenfeld, Daniel Wolf
Director: Ric Burns
Running Time: 2 x 2 hours, or 4 x 1 hour
Year of Production: 2006

Director, Writer (with James Sanders) and Producer (with Donald Rosenfeld and Daniel Wolf) Ric Burns’s portrait of the most resoundingly influential American artist of the second half of the twentieth century. Combining on-camera interviews and never-before-seen still and archival motion picture footage, the film was the first to explore the complete spectrum of Andy Warhol’s astonishing artistic output, stretching across five decades from the late 1940's, to his untimely death in the 1980's.

Described the film as “Hypnotic, powerful and revealing” and “entirely absorbing, revelatory portrait of a brilliant talent driven to greatness by an inner chorus of demons and angels.”

A Co-Production of Steeplechase Films, Daniel Wolf, High Line Productions and Thirteen/WNET New York.
