Jean-Michel Basquiat - The Radiant Child Trailer

Chronicling the rapid rise and fall of celebrated painter Jean-Michel Basquiat, Tamra Davis’ compelling documentary moves to a spirited soundtrack by Beastie Boys Mike D and Ad Rock.

Using early film footage that she shot of her artist friend as a point of departure, Davis interviews art-world players who knew the troubled Basquiat from the time he was tagging the streets and putting his first marks on canvas through his days collaborating with Andy Warhol and his untimely death at 27.
