BOOM FOR REAL: THE LATE TEENAGE YEARS OF JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT
Directed by Sara Driver
USA, 2017, 78 minutes, documentary

How did New York City, the era, the people, and the movements that surrounded Jean-Michael Basquiat, a teenager of Haitian and Puerto Rican decent, form an artist who came to define late 20th century art? In the late 70s and early 80s, success and power in the world of art were very different than they are today. Boom For Real tells Jean-Michel Basquiats and New York City's story before that era ended and the art-world changed. Today, the highest price paid for the work of an American Artist in an auction was for a painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat, who died in 1988 at the age of 27.

Stay for a discussion with Rockland artists Brett De Palma and Bill Batson. Brett De Palma was a 2013 recipient of the Rockland County Executives Visual Artist Award and a friend of Basquiats, and Nyack Sketchlogs Bill Batson received the County Executives Mary Grant Patron of the Arts Award in 2013.

"Near the end of the movie, one of Basquiats friends refers to him as a true investigator. In Ms. Driver, the artist finds a kindred spirit, a fellow investigator who pays him proper and enthralling tribute." (NYTimes Critics Pick)  Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
