Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat

Synopsis: 
This documentary is a window into the life of the painter Jean-Michel Basquiat and of New York City, 1978-81. It is a comprehensive look at the movements that touched and inspired him as well as the influence a bankrupt violent city had on this seminal artist. Jean-Michel has become, over the years, the ultimate representation of this period. All the many things that were going in the city fed through him - politics, hip-hop, punk rock, race issues and the art scene.
