  • Quite possibly the most recognized and influential American artist of the 20th century, Andy Warhol remains something of an enigma. Always reticent with the media, Warhol nonetheless clamored for the spotlight and always made sure he was surrounded by the rich and famous. Here, Chuck Workman tries to get inside the life of Mr. Warhol by bringing together interviews with the artist himself, innumerable celebrities, Warhol's family, and some Campbell's Soup executives. However, true to Warhol's image and his art, Workman ends up with an incredibly diverse portrait of both Warhol's art and his celebrity, providing a rare glimpse at what Warhol's Factory was like in the sixties and seventies.

    The inventor of Pop Art and a pop cultural hero, Andy Warhol was both America's most celebrated and most controversial artist. This documentary focuses on Warhol's work and star-studded world in which he moved. Using a glittering collage of media images, commentary from the vast assortment of celebrities and scene-makers who knew Warhol (Lou Reed, Dennis Hopper, Roy Lichtenstien, Ultra Violet and Fran Lebowitz, to name a very few), and interviews with the enigmatic artist himself, Chuck Workman fashions a portrait of a career in which surfaces were everything and fame was an end in itself.
