German model Christa Paffgen was a singer and occasional actress who became the pop icon, Nico. Her tumultuous life began as a 50’s supermodel leading to roles in Fellini’s ‘La Dolce Vita’ and Andy Warhol’s ‘Chelsea Girls’,eventually becoming the goddess of the cult band Velvet Underground. This luminous work explores the femme fatale turned junkie and features interviews with 60’s legends Viva, Paul Morrissey, Jackson Browne, John Cale, Sterling Morrison as well as Nico’s son Ari who was introduced to heroin by his own mother. This film glides from the vastly entertaining to to sadly shocking.
