Behind the scenes
Here are some of the people interviewed for the film. We're excited to share their stories of Piero's underground life.
Jonas Mekas, the grandfather of avant-garde cinema
"Rosebud" Pettet, star of Piero's film "Flash Gordon"
Gerard Malanga, poet, photographer and filmmaker who has been called Andy Warhol's "most important associate"
Piero Heliczer's Dirt touched me most deeply. Its beauty is very personal and lyrical. And every frame of it is cinema. I can do no justice to this beautiful work in one paragraph.
- Jonas Mekas, film critic, The Village Voice
