evening of light was filmed and directed in 1969 by french director, francois de meil, as a video promo for nico's album, the marble index. iron asheton and iggy pop (who starred alongside nico) discussed the event in "please kill me" written by legs mcneil and gillian mccain:
iggy pop: we ran around and around this potato field and mimed with plastic limbs. i never made much sense of it. it was jive. but i needed dinner that day. what had happened whas that francois de meil of texas money wanted to do a film with nico and she said, 'if you wanna do a film, you gotta come out to michigan and put jimmy in it.' so he said, ' well, okay.'
