La Presse Films debuts first feature film with Andy Warhol based documentary “My Nephew Jamie”

December 2, 2022, New York, NY

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.

ANDY WARHOL’S LIVING ROOM PAINTING

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!!!!

New York City will be safe once again by enforcing involuntary mental health laws

Freedom To Live

New York City Mayor, Eric Adams, went to task on Tuesday that ensures the residents of the five boroughs, as well as commuters and tourists who file into this great city 24/ 7 are safe wherever they go, that vital step is addressing mental health, where Mayor Adams made it mandatory that those who need treatment for mental health and homelessness, especially on the MTA subway lines, get it immediately, where city officials and New York City police are now enforcing this new law for the safety of not only those who need help, but for the safety of everyone else.

For too long, the problem of mental health in New York City, compounded with homelessness has been ignored, according to Mayor Adams.

This also leads to all crimes such robbery, assault, or even murder, also coupled with new laws such as the Civil Liberties Act, legalizing marijuana in New York City, and other pre and post COVID-19 pandemic acts , including inflation, that have sparked a rise in crime in New York City, Daniel plus Lauren has been a witness to mentally ill individuals seen more frequently in Hell’s Kitchen throughout this year alone, and told stories of individuals getting murdered in the Bronx, moments after giving money to another individual they were passing by.

Even places like Times Square have met the shadow of its former ugly self before being reformed into a travel destination in the mid 1990’s, crime is more frequent, and you have to hold onto your possessions while worrying about your own safety more carefully than you’ve had in years.

Involuntary help for mental illness and homelessness is one immediate step to walk easier in New York City, stepping up law enforcement on all individuals who took advantage of freedoms given to those prior to Tuesday’s act by Mayor Adams is also vital for those who work, visit, and live in New York City on a regular basis, along with improved water, transportation, and economic opportunities.
