ANDY WARHOL

Consumerism, glamour, disasters and mass media - Andy Warhol's art is a mirror image of America. Son of Slovakian immigrants, he rose, with his Campbell's Soup Cans and silk-screen-duplicated Marilyn, to become a Pop Art icon.

His blond wig and eccentric lifestyle, and the wild goings-on at his legendary Factory became his trademarks. He turned art into a marketable and reproducible commodity. 

Designer, artist, film-maker, music producer and publisher - to some he was a genius, to others a shallow epigone. Director Kim Evans portrays the controversial phenomenon and human "total artwork" that was Warhol.

Running time: 77 minutes.
