Synopsis

A profile of Andy Warhol superstar and rebel Brigid Berlin, whose parents were Fifth Avenue socialites and in the William Randolph Hearst circle. She continually defied their efforts to keep her on diets and in the right schools. Instead, Berlin became a staple of Warhol's infamous Factory and films. Her blatant use of amphetamines, including the scene in "Chelsea Girls" that has Berlin plunging an amphetamine-filled hypodermic needle through her jeans, was the last straw. For the past 35 years she has been an obsessive artist, pug fancier, and consumer of key lime pies.
