The documentary In The Fabulous Underground (produced by Minimal Cinema) sees as protagonist Anton Perich and is designed as a journey through Mikulici, birthplace of the artist, and New York where he lives and has been operating since 1970.
The project started in 2010 by a Betty L’Innocente’s idea (author of the subject) and comes to life thanks to the close artistic partnership with directors Claudio Romano and Mauro John Capece who, fascinated by the genial and unassuming nature of Perich, launch themselves into the making of the movie.
The documentary takes, during construction, the experimental appearance of the biopic.
The reality Croatian strong links with the poet Perich, is opposed to that of New York City, scene of his artistic maturity. In The Fabulous Underground will be unique in the new movies are shot from the Studio '54 and Max's Kansas City, showing the likes of Salvador Dali, Muhammad Ali and Andy Warhol.
To describe Big Apple’s culture in the early '70s (the beat-punk and glam-rock generation) Minimal Cinema relies on the words of true New York’s characters.
In the biopic are interviews with Taylor Mead (actor in several films by Andy Warhol), Susan Blond (current record producer, at the time known as first aired naked woman in the history of American tv) and Victor
Bockris (accredited like Andy Warhol’s biographer). The biopic has been reviewed, previewed, by the celebrated critic Patrick Smith, who has enjoyed the tension lyrical beauty and fidelity to the underground audiovisual canons .
The intent of Minimal Cinema is to enhance the figure of Anton Perich as artist and, above all, as man.
