In BOOM FOR REAL: THE LATE TEENAGE YEARS OF JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT, director Sara Driver explores the pre-fame years of the celebrated American painter Jean-Michel Basquiat and how his experiences living in athriving New York City arts scene of the late 1970s and ‘80s shaped his visionary works. Seen through the eyes of contemporaries like Nan Goldin, Jim Jarmusch, Fab Five Freddy and more, Basquiat’s personal magnetism,eccentricity, and indefatigable work ethic shine through, creating a portrait of a young artist that goes beyond the hype of contemporary fascination and grounds him in the vibrant context of his times.
