In the late 1970s and early 80s New York was a dangerous, decaying city. It was also an incredibly vibrant place where all kinds of artists - musicians, filmmakers and painters alike - could afford to live, creating a unique melting pot of styles and cultures. One of the most iconic figures from this scene - which included the likes of Madonna and Jean-Michel Basquiat - was Keith Haring. Inspired by the graffiti that covered the city at that time, the campaigning, openly-gay artist was best known for his incredibly vibrant 'stick' figures that, in effect, became a global brand. This affectionate documentary takes a look at Haring's life and career, with interviews with family and friends reflecting how well-loved he was.
