An Andy Warhol Living Room painting is sold at Phillips Auction on November 15, 2022.

The painting you are about to see below this paragraph is just one of the early paintings from the Warhola Family Estate. The living room painting is one of the paintings that Andy Warhol painted as an assignment when he was a student of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh,PA. His assignment was to paint a living room. Andy decided to paint the family living room from his home on Dawson Street. La Presse Films was fortunate to have access to this Warhola Family home in Pittsburgh, so the painting and the actual living room is filmed in our doc, kind of a neat fact.


The biggest news for “My Nephew Jamie,” La Presse Films now has a rough cut, and they are busy putting together the clearances necessary to release the film. This is very time consuming and expensive.

James has been very busy with his personal life and preparing the family Andy Warhol paintings for this past Phillips Auction. La Presse Films thought it might be fun for you to catch up here with this lovely interview from Edge Magazine.

The year 2022 was very busy for Film Maker, Bonnie Bien.

In addition to an amazing digital rough-cut screening of our film at prestigious “Norman Rockwell Museum”, you can watch La Presse Films’s Q&A about “My Nephew Jamie”

In January, Bonnie curated a fashion exhibition at “The Brick Store Museum” in Kennebunk, Maine. The highly successful exhibition consisted of 30+ vintage performance gowns belonging to the legendary Singer, Jane Morgan. The exhibition ran from February 1 – May 21, 2022.

Bonnie then brought the Jane Morgan exhibition to New York Fashion Week in September, it ran for one week, it was well received by fashionistas, media, and the public.

Documentary films can take a long time to produce. It’s worth the wait because “My Nephew Jamie” plans to be released in 2023.

If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to “My Nephew Jamie”, a documentary, you can do so with the film’s fiscal sponsor NYFA – New York Foundation for the Arts!!!!
