>Household Affairs

>In 1987 Sony Corp gave out a batch of High 8 cams to artists and writers around the world, and in return they asked that each make a movie. Allen got one, and Household Affairs was the result. Edited by Allen’s close friend and accompanist, Steven Taylor, this was filmed over a period of two months, October-November, 1987, and focuses mostly on Julius Orlovsky who’d been staying as a guest over that period. Brilliant insight into the daily routine at the apartement on East 12th Street back in the 80s, with ‘cameos’ from the likes of Harry Smith, Allen’s Russian translator Viktor Sosnora, Jell-O Biafra, Robert Frank, June Leaf, Carl Solomon, Gordon Ball, Peter Orlovsky and many more.
