NICO, 1988
I 2017 98 min OmU
Dir: Susanna Nicchiarelli

Approaching 50, singer-songwriter Nico (played by Trine Dyrholm, Silver 
Bear Winner, for The Commune) leads a solitary low-key existence in 
Manchester, far from her 60s glam days as a Warhol superstar and 
celebrated vocalist for cult band The Velvet Underground. She doesn’t 
care much anymore about her looks nor her career, performing thanks to 
her new manager Richard who gives Nico some needed drive to hit the road 
again to tour Europe. Struggling with her demons and the consequences of 
a muddled life, she longs to rebuild a relationship with her son, whose 
custody she lost long ago. A brave and uncompromising musician, Nico’s 
story is the story of a rebirth: of an artist, of a mother, of the woman 
behind the icon.

NICO, 1988 won Best Film in the Orizzonti section of the 2017 Venice 
Film Festival.

The screening is followed by a Q&A with legendary Berlin musician Lüül 
<https://www.facebook.com/lutz.grafulbrich> (Agitation Free, 17 Hippies, 
Lüül und Band) a longtime friend and collaborator of Nico's.
