Description:

The Chelsea Girls
Saturday, November 05, 2011 8:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m.
1966. USA. Directed by Andy Warhol.

Perpetual voyeur Andy Warhol peeps into the tarnished jewel lives of 1960’s New York underworld celebrities. In this unique double projection, split screen film, a look at the happenings in eight different rooms at the infamous Chelsea Hotel is garishly revealed. In addition to starring beautiful boys and girls who spent time drinking, dancing and taking drugs at The Factory, we also meet a lesbian junkie and her dealer, a dominatrix and the outrageous “Pope of Greenwich Village”. Called a burlesque, a soap opera as well as a Greek tragedy, The Chelsea Girls reveals the desperation of drug addiction, and the cold terror of fame without preparation.
