Downtown 81

directed by Edo Bertoglio.
Summary
In 1981, writer and Warhol associate Glenn O'Brien, Swiss photographer Edo Bertoglio, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, a graffiti innovator and noise music artist, hit the streets of lower Manhattan to make a movie about their bombed-out bohemia. Left incomplete due to money problems and assembled for release in 2000, the film, which follows Basquiat trying to move a painting while hustling for a place to sleep, became a window on a lost world of life on the margins and crazy creative ferment.
