Description by Image Entertainment:
This is the first major profile of Andy Warhol's life and work since his death in 1987 and includes some previously unseen footage of the artist, shot in London shortly before his death. Warhol's was the classic American rags to riches story: he was born in the industrial slums of Pittsburgh the child of poor Czech immigrants. He grew up dreaming of Hollywood stars and eventually became a star himself, famous for his pop art, his bizarre underground films and for being the celebrity who for twenty years attended every party in town. This program shows Warhol performing for the media in interviews ranging over 25 years and examines his artistic achievements in a career which spanned painting, film, publishing, rock music and television. It also includes clips from films such as "Chelsea Girls," "Lonesome Cowboys" and "Women in Revolt," archival material, newsreel footage and contributions from many of Warhol's closest associates and superstars, including Ondine, Viva, John Giorno and Brigid Berlin.
