FLY

FLY

When I was searching for a copy of “Ballet mécanique” to download, I also found “FLY” at this wonderful site of avant garde films. I had the album back in the late 70’s and some of it I would play in my MG. It was the only real thing close to Punk that I enjoyed. Finally I get to see the film. Yoko should get more credit for being an Artist and the fact she is still pushing the Peace movement is a marvel since it appears that nothing is really going to change (war march’s on).

“Fly (1971)

Fly was 19 minutes in length and, as with Up your legs filmed during the same New York visit, also took two days to film in a New York attic. Although only one person was filmed, in contrast to the 331 gathered for the Legs film, Fly was a more complicated project.

John and Yoko asked New York actress Virginia Lust to lie down naked whilst they filmed a fly exploring her body. Approximately 200 flies were used and each had to be stunned with a special gas. The film showed a fly traversing the girl’s body from her toes to her head, exploring every part. It was claimed that Virginia Lust also had to be sedated during the filming.

Further filming of the Lennon’s also took place during this period in the Bowery, rare footage includes John playing guitar.”
