The first trailer for Todd Haynes’ forthcoming documentary feature on the Velvet Underground has been released.
The feature, The Velvet Underground: A Documentary Film By Todd Haynes, is set to grace Apple TV+ from the 15th of October.
The first trailer features John Cale and Moe Tucker recalling their time in the band while archival footage of Lou Reed and their manager Andy Warhol is interspersed throughout.
Reed can be heard laying down the demimonde ethos of the band as he cites: “I was interested in communicating with people who were on the outside.”
The film comes with the official tagline of: “A treasure trove of never-before-seen performances and a rich collection of recordings, Warhol films, and other experimental art.”
Todd Haynes is known for his previous work on the Bob Dylan biography-drama fusion I’m Not There and his Oscar-nominated picture Carol.
Owing to the fact that the band largely flopped during their actual time together as performers presents its own set of challenges when it comes to a documentary due to the limited footage available to Haynes.
