This is a recent documentary about my longtime obsession, Jean Michel Basquiat, made by his friend Tamra Davis, who knew him well enough to film him at the time working and in conversation. Footage of Jean Michel Basquiat is, sadly, rather rare, so I savour every second of this documentary. Check out the trailer, some of which is very aptly spliced to Dizzy Gillespie’s Salt Peanuts.
