Editorial Reviews

Wicked and fun, ANDY WARHOL'S FACTORY PEOPLE is a dazzling trip into the creative and chaotic underground world of Warhol's Silver Factory. Accompanied by a psychedelic soundtrack and trippy special effects, this wildly entertaining documentary tells the real story of Andy Warhol as he became the epicenter of the New York avant-garde art scene in the Sixties.

In original interviews, clips of Warhol screen tests and films, and thousands of photos and rare archival footage chronicling factory life, Warhol Superstars and friends revisit their fifteen minutes of fame and everything that came with it drugs, sex, music, and the joy of being filmed doing it all. Factory people Billy Name, Gerard Malanga, Mary Woronov, Taylor Mead, Brigid Berlin, UltraViolet, and Bibbi Hansen candidly discuss the magic and mayhem of the Silver Factory, including their intimate dealings with Andy Warhol, the comings and goings of artistic giants like Bob Dylan and Lou Reed, and the day-to-day drama of these eccentric bohemians.

A snapshot of an exhilarating time, FACTORY PEOPLE vividly brings to life a fascinating counterculture and its spiritual father, icon and innovator Andy Warhol.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Overview of Warhol's Factory November 27, 2008
Format:DVD
I highly recommend this documentary series for anyone with even a remote interest in Andy Warhol's Factory, or any of the sordid cast of characters associated with that groundbreaking artistic community. It's the story of the 60's Silver Factory that Andy founded in 1964 in an abandoned hat factory on East 47th Street in New York City. The best part of this particular portrait, is the multitude of contemporary interviews with those involved, such as Gerard Malanga, Billy Name, Taylor Mead, Ultra Violet, Danny Fields, actress Mary Woronov, Bibbe Hansen (Beck's mother; they're both Scientologists! Yikes!), as well as Velvet Undergrounders Lou Reed, plus some archival interviews with Nico, to name just a few. I've seen the PBS series about Warhol, and while that was an exhaustively thorough examination of all aspects of Warhol's life, I enjoyed this particular one even more so. It was more personal. From all the first hand accounts, I really came away with a better sense of what it was really like to hang out there, and to be a part of that scene. Sure there were lonely, alienated hangers-on that were just there as incidental props, but there was also a core group of brilliant, visionary artists and intellectuals that helped Andy make the Factory a such a vibrant arts scene. The numerous interviews made with those involved at the time, make this documentary a real gem, and I would highly recommend it. It's a three-part series and well worth the cost. I saw it on the Ovation cable channel, and I will most definitely be purchasing it.

This dvd was scheduled for release early in 2009 (I preordered it). The release was delayed twice and now it apparently will not be released at all.
