How Andy Discovered "Factory Girl" Edie (Sedgwick) and Created the Superstars

True Uncut Tales from Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory offer valuable insight into the artist’s life during his most prolific period: The Silver Factory era, when he was making art, making avant-garde movies, making stars, and making history

How Andy Discovered (and actually lost) Edie, and Created the Superstars takes us back to 1964, when Warhol opened the doors to his Studio/Factory and went in search of a glamourous muse to inspire him.  This is the true story of Andy Warhol's "Factory Girl".

Watch the film here...

Andy's first ‘Girl of the Year’ would be blonde socialite Baby Jane Holzer.

And then Edie showed up.  Edie and Andy.  They needed no last names. After more than a half century they are still synonymous with the ‘Swinging Sixties’. One was a self-absorbed artist seeking fame, the other a self-absorbed debutante searching for a purpose in life.

They were the perfect couple.

Books have been published, movies made, and songs written about their unlikely pairing and doomed trajectory. This film, a follow-up to our own award-winning television series, uses uncensored interviews and archival footage to give us an unflinching portrait of a controversial artist, a tragically damaged ‘It’ girl, and the unconventional women Warhol called Superstars.
