Andy Warhol: a documentary film
Length: 240 minutes
English without subtitles

“He was the most American of artists and the most artistic of Americans,” one man once said – “so American in fact that he is almost invisible to us.” Andy Warhol is a riveting and often deeply moving film por- trait of the most famous and famously con- troversial artist of the second half of the twentieth century. It is the first documentary that explores the complete spectrum of Warhol’s astonishing artistic output, stretching across five decades from the late 1940’s to his untimely death in 1987. Combining powerful on-camera interviews and rare still and motion picture footage, it is also the first to put Warhol himself – his humble family background and formative experiences in Pittsburgh, and his crucial apprenticeship as a commercial artist in New York – back into the presentation of his life.
