Muse to Andy Warhol, actress, model, socialite and the original ‘It Girl’ Edie Sedgwick was a true Icon whose style still has an influence today.
The legendary Ciao! Manhattan, which sees the iconic Superstar take centre stage in her crowning – and only major role – a film that took years to make and was finally released in 1972 after her tragic death, has long been unavailable in the UK. But now, courtesy of Second Sight, the film is receiving its first ever Blu-ray release, arriving on 20 August 2018 complete with fascinating special features, including commentaries, interviews and‘the lost Ciao! Manhattan reels’.
Written and directed by Factory regulars John Palmer and David Weisman this cult film is a semi-biographicaltake on Sedgewick’s life and captures a seminal time in history, the groundbreaking 1960s New York art scene.
