Uncle Andy: The Andy Warhol Family Film-Kickstarter

Who knew that Andy Warhola dropped the “A” from his last name when a cockroach caused him to whack a letter off his briefcase? Warhol’s great niece is on a mission to film an intimate portrait of the artist through the stories of the Warholas, who knew the pop art icon as, simply, Uncle Andy.“Uncle Andy” is a documentary film about the iconic artist Andy Warhol that is unlike anything that has ever been seen before. Filmmakers, Abby Warhola (Andy’s great niece) and Jesse Best capture a rare portrait of Warhol by members of his very modest family – the Warholas. It is sure to rock the art world with an intimate side of Warhol, far removed from the counter culture scene of the infamous ‘Silver Factory.‘  The late Paul Warhola, Andy’s eccentric oldest brother, a chicken farmer turned artist is the highlight of this film project along with his many nephews and nieces. Their personal stories of Andy will surprise many who thought they may have already known Warhol. With a family like this it is no wonder that Warhol became the most influential artist of modern time.
