Nico, 1988 is a road-movie dedicated to the last years of Christa Päffgen, known by her stage name “Nico”. One of Warhol’s muses, singer of The Velvet Underground and a woman of legendary beauty, Nico lived a second life after the story known to all, when she began her career as a solo artist. The film follows Nico’s last tours with the band that accompanied her around Europe in the eighties, and tells a story of the rebirth of an artist, a mother, and the woman beyond the icon.
