Jean-Michel Basquiat ....."Downtown 81"

from photographer Ramulass Burgas ( thnx Ram):

"I am sharing with you a film {trailer} staring Basquiat। A metaphorical explanation of his road to "success". Starring mr. Basquait himself, Downtown 81 was a film project that was created in the 80's but wasn't completed because of financial difficulties. The sound was misplaced during the film's incubation period, but in 2000 the rights to the film was aquired by the original directors and resurrected with voice overs, Saul Williams dubbing the voice over for Basquiat himself."

Go to the site to see the trailer

Ram passed along a download of the whole movie but I don't know how to add it to the blog. If anyone wants it, send me an email.
