This documentary tells the story of celebrated artist Jean-Michel Basquiat before he became an international icon, and how New York City, in all its vibrancy, helped shape the man he became and the work he produced. Artistic figures from the era reminisce about their experiences with Jean-Michel, as well as the art scene at the time, and the ways that culture responded to the severe social and economic problems facing the city. For many, it was the last period where artists could live in, interact with, and help define urban spaces without the dominating influences of celebrity, capitalism and commercialism. This is a fascinating portrait of the 1970s art scene and helps to shed further light on a man who continues to be revered by generations of young people.
