The Wendy Wild Story
July 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A Documentary by Glenn Andreiev
Wendy Wild was a force majeure on the EV/LES and downtown art, performance, and music scene, from the 70s through the 90s—until her untimely death from breast cancer in 1996. Her work with John Sex; with countless venues like Club 57, Pyramid, The Roxy, and Jackie 60; and with a bevy of bands, including Pulsallama, Peter Zaremba’s Love Delegation, and Das Fürlines, was unrivaled. Her wide range of influences included Joey Heatherton, Grace Slick, Tiny Tim, Moondog, The Monks, and Slim Whitman.
Her younger brother, Glenn Andreiev, has crafted a loving and honest portrayal of his legendary sister, which includes interviews with the people she knew best.
Glenn Andreiev grew up on Long Island with his two sisters, Lois and Wendy. His sisters helped introduce him to filmmaking during his early teens. Glenn attended the film department of the New York School of Visual Arts. He completed feature narrative, micro-budgeted films such as Sharp and Sudden, Every Move You Make, and The Deed to Hell. Currently, Andreiev teaches film history at the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, NY, and other venues. His 2016 feature documentary Lost Emulsion focuses on lost films and film preservation.
