Genre: Documentary

Keywords: art & artists

This sixteen minutes film is a docu-portrait of Isabelle Collin-Dufresne, aka Ultra Violet. Mistress to Salvador Dali in the 60's, "superstar" in Andy Warhol's factory in the 70's, and a born-again Mormon, Ultra Violet muses on her spiritual rebirth, fame, God and the meaning of life in this short intimate film. Includes rare photographs, Andy Warhol's screentest of Ultra Violet from 1965, and David Henry Gerson's contemporary screentest of Ultra Violet from 2008. 'Totally engaging" says Albert Mayseles, "A gem of a little film" - The Huffington Post. ultravioletfilm.wordpress.com
