Film - Jean Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child (2010)
Jean Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child directed by Tamra Davis captures the feel of the early 1980s NYC downtown arts scene and the vibrant painter Jean Michel Basquiat. He went from living on the streets of the Village to being a millionaire in a couple of years. He was called some sort of savage innocent, but Basquiat thought that they wouldn't have used such language if he had been a white painter.
