Warhol's "You Are the One" to Premiere at the Detroit MoNA

If you are in or near Detroit on November 12th 2006, you will have the chance to a attend what might be the only screening of a long lost Andy Warhol short digital film, created in the mid-80's using Amiga computers, at the Museum of New Art.

Until its 2001 discovery, what had only been hinted at and rumored is that Warhol had actually created a short digital film on one such computer, probably the first such digital creation by any important artist. Titled YOU ARE THE ONE, the digital stills were discovered on a floppy diskz among thousands in Warhol’s estate. [...] However, due to threatened legal action tied to estate disputes and to its pending seizure, the museum will only be allowed a one day screening of the film.
