Downtown 81

In the early 1980s, artist Jean-Michel Basquiat starred in an indie film called Downtown 81, about the thriving art and music scenes happening then in New York City. (It even features Debbie Harry as a bag lady who turns into a princess.) The film wasn’t released until a Cannes Film Festival premiere in 2000. Catch a screening of the elusive film at Row House Cinema as part of this week’s theme, Day in the Life: Paris vs. NYC.
