Women in Revolt
Directed by Paul Morrissey
Running time: 97 minutes
Women in Revolt (1971) was written and directed by underground American filmmaker Paul Morrissey (Flesh, Trash and Heat) and produced by Andy Warhol. Starring transgender Factory stars Candy Darling, Jackie Curtis and Holly Woodlawn, it was the last film for which Warhol actually shot some scenes, partly at the behest of Curtis who refused to act unless Warhol was behind the camera. A humorous satire on the Women's Liberation Movement, making reference to Valerie Solano and the SCUM manifesto, it follows the trials and tribulations of three women from very different walks of life: nymphomaniac Holly, frigid Jackie and rich solialite Candy. Holly and Jackie decide to form a small group of women's libbers and try to convince Candy to join them. Filmed sporadically over a year between 1970 and 1971 it features evocative improvisational acting from its large than life characters as well as a soundtrack by John Cale.
