VH1 Rock Docs: Lords of the Revolution


Originally Aired Aug 14, 2009

From 1964 - 68, Warhol's factory on East 47th Street provided a social arena for collaborative experimentation. Warhol developed an eclectic network of associates that spanned the worlds of poetry, fashion, film, photography, art, music and the drug culture. Speed freaks, drag queens, musicians, poets, superstars, fashion beauties, and avant-garde artists helped shape a scene unique in American history at a time when Warhol produced some of his most revolutionary work, including the underground films that were the precursor for reality television.
