Pie in the Sky: The Brigid Berlin Story

Rating:No Rating
Release Date:January 1, 2000
Running time:75 minutes
Director:Vincent and Shelly Dunn Fremont

Description: Like Susanne Ofteringer's Nico-Icon (1995), Vincent Fremont's Pie in the Sky: The Brigid Berlin Story chronicles the life of one of the more colorful and unforgettable women to emerge from Andy Warhol's menagerie of artists, actors, lost souls, and hangers-on. The daughter of wealthy, powerful, and conservative parents who were fixtures of Manhattan high society, Brigid Berlin rebelled at a young age, enduring a whirlwind marriage and a spell at a fasting clinic in Mexico before making her way to Warhol's Factory, where she earned fame for her Polaroid photos and her habit of recording phone conversations. Although her parents weren't enthusiastic about their daughter's work in such Warhol films as The Chelsea Girls and Bike Boy, Berlin remained a fixture on the Warhol scene, gaining further notoriety for her one-woman shows and the paintings she created using her breasts as brushes. Among the people director Vincent Fremont interviews is filmmaker John Waters, who cast Berlin in a small role in his 1994 Serial Mom.~ Rebecca Flint Marx, All Movie Guide
