In his short career, Jean-Michel Basquiat was a phenomenon. His dense, bebop-influenced neoexpressionist work emerged in the 1980s while minimalist art was the fad and as a successful black artist, he was constantly confronted by racism and misconceptions.  In this documentary portrait of the renowned artist, Basquiat's friend and filmmaker Tamra Davis shines the spotlight on New York City painter, built around a lost, personal interview with the artist, rare archival footage and more.
