A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is steeped in other influences: Spaghetti Westerns, 1950s juvenile delinquent movies, gearhead movies, teenage rom-coms, the Iranian New Wave. Shot in California but set in a distorted, black and white version of Iran called Bad City, director Ana Lily Amirpour draws on an eclectic assortment of influences and blends aesthetics associated with Eastern and Western filmmaking to create work that has been billed as the “first Iranian vampire Western” and hailed as a female-empowered and unique take on the vampire film.

Between 1963 and 1966 Andy Warhol worked at making film portraits of all sorts of characters linked to New York art circles. Famous people and anonymous people were filmed by Andy Warhol’s 16 mm camera, for almost four minutes, without any instructions other than ‘to get in front of the camera’.
