‘There is magic flowing throughout…captures the vibe of the early Warhol Factory days better than any other’ WeAreCult
The original ‘It Girl’ Edie Sedgwick stars as Susan Superstar in the legendary Ciao! Manhattan which sees the actress and socialite take centre stage. Muse to Andy Warhol, the model was a true icon whose style still has an influence today. The film is set for its first ever Blu-ray release, arriving on 20 August 2018 and to celebrate Second Sight is giving away two copies.
Blending fact with fiction and filled with mesmerising footage of the infamous underground art movement and Warhol’s Factory, the film follows the story of a young woman, whose partying lifestyle and celebrity leads to her downfall. The film is interspersed with interviews with the actress and is made all the more poignant as sadly Sedgwick died shortly after the film was completed.
This cult classic is a semi-biographical take on Sedgewick’s life and captures a seminal time in history, the groundbreaking 1960s New York art scene.
Ciao! Manhattan is a haunting portrait of a cultural icon.
