Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat tracks the artist’s teen years and offers an insightful look into times, people, and ideas that shaped him. Using never-before-seen works, writings, film, and photographs, director Sara Driver tapped his friends and other artists who emerged along with Basquiat. This documentary acknowledges the artist’s self-constructed, mythical biography -his heroic, rags-to-riches story. The documentary confirms Basquiat’s importance while illustrating life in NYC in 1970s and 1980s.
