Fab Five Freddy in Downtown 81

Downtown 81

2001 NR

A gritty, punk-rock fantasia starring legendary graffiti artist, poet and musician Jean Michel Basquiat, Downtown 81 was, for years, considered a "lost" film. It chronicles the hipper-than-hip downtown New York art and music scene of 1980-81 while capturing one of the most interesting and lively artists of the late 20th century as he stands poised for fame. Features appearances by Deborah Harry, Fab Five Freddy and Kid Creole and the Coconuts.
