A Walk into the Sea

Filmmaker Esther Robinson goes on a quest to find out what happened to her uncle, Danny Williams, who disappeared from his family home at 27. When his family began their search, only his car was found parked by some cliffs overlooking the ocean. As Robinson hunts for her uncle, many new things come to light, such as his excellent films and experimentation with lighting at The Velvet Underground concerts. A member of Andy Warhol’s Factory, Danny was involved in numerous artistic endeavors, and interviews with Chuck Wein, Billy Name, Brigid Berlin, and The Velvet Underground’s John Cale relate Danny’s personality and relationship with Andy. Robinson discovers more of the circumstances surrounding his disappearance, as well as more about his life, work and personality, but exactly what happened to her uncle remains a mystery.
