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

Using unique archive footage, interviews with insiders and an exceptional soundtrack (which tells a story all its own), Boom for Real outlines how the effervescent scene in 1970s and 1980s New York contributed to the formation of young, enigmatic artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. The insiders include big names such as filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, rapper Fab 5 Freddy and graffiti artist Lee Quiñones.

They relate how Basquiat built a bridge between the era of Andy Warhol and art forms such as graffiti, hip hop, rap, breakdance and punk rock that were emerging in run-down, drug-infested New York—in particular in the artistic enclave around SoHo. During this period, Basquiat roamed the city like a homeless teenager and was evicted from buildings repeatedly, but he demonstrated an unerring ability to capture the spirit of the times. As one participant in the film aptly puts it, "Basquiat understood the nature of public space."

An extremely rich collage of images, texts and music enthrallingly reveals how this young, energetic visionary who absorbed everything around him was able to endow this public space with his very unique signature.
