But now, courtesy of Second Sight, the film is receiving its first ever Blu-ray release, arriving on 20 August 2018 complete with fascinating special features, including commentaries, interviews and 'the lost Ciao! Manhattan reels'.

Written and directed by Factory regulars John Palmer and David Weisman this cult film is a semi-biographical take on Sedgwick's life and captures a seminal time in history, the groundbreaking 1960s New York art scene.

His performance was highly acclaimed and a wealth of prestigious film, television and stage offers flooded on, but they weren't to be. Having become enthralled by the director's all-encompassing process of creation, the actor sacrificed his flourishing career to take on the humble role of assistant to the master filmmaker.
