“ Welcome to the Silver Factory. You are about to enter a space and an era that was ridiculed by some, feared by many, adored by anyone who had been there, and envied by the rest who weren’t ”. The 60′s and the name ANDY WARHOL : both of them were indefinable, interchangeable, infinitely fascinating; and, for a timeless moment, indestructible.

Hundreds of archive are there and some never seen or used, taking us deep inside the labyrinthine world of New York City and its best-known celebrities and clubhouses. Interviews link us to a short biography of the different social backgrounds artists and friends of Andy, the Factory’s survivors.
