Warhol's death in 1987 was the end of a classic American rags-to-riches story. Born in the slums of  Pittsburgh, he grew up dreaming of Hollywood stars and eventually became a cult hero himself, famous for his Pop Art, his bizarre Underground films and simply for being a celebrity. This film looks at the whole range of his creativity and focuses on his unique understanding of mass culture, his archive and newsreel footage, extracts from his movies and interviews with many of his closest associates.

Directed by Kim Evans
