Gerard Malanga (b. 1943), poet, photographer, and filmmaker, worked with Andy Warhol during that artist's most creative period in the mid '60s. A lead actor in the several Warhol films, Malanga also created films of his own, almost entirely with a hand-held Bolex. Early works include Donovan Meets Gerard (1966), a performative meeting between the filmmaker and folk singer Donovan, and In Search of the Miraculous (1967). Malanga's poetry ranges from chic death (1971) to Mythologies of the Heart (1996). He continues to write poetry and maintain an archive of his still and motion picture records of life at Warhol's Factory.
