I am from Nowhere| 1hr : 19mins
Director: Georg Misch | Producer: Johannes Rosenberger
Focus Years: 2002 | Country: Austria
Since 1952 countless films, documentaries, and reports have been made on the subject of MikovÃ¡, the small village in Eastern Slovakia with a population of one hundred and fifty where the family of Andy Warhol stemmed from. Focusing on his relatives who still live there I am from Nowhere investigates the fuss the media made about them, thus reflecting on filming as well as being filmed, on media-fame, and on Warhol's legendary 15 minutes thereof. But this is a film even more about the dreams and hopes of the people there, about the universal human dream of a better life, and about an "American Dream" which quite unexpectedly turns out to be nightmarish.
