Basquiat, Free Film Night at Brasil

Tuesday Jan 29th 8pm
Flatland Gallery + Brasil Presents "Basquiat"
Hosted by Nicky Davis

Please join us at Brasil for the free screening of the 1996 Drama "Basquiat". Despite living a life of extreme poverty in Brooklyn, graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (Jeffrey Wright) strives to rise up through the heady New York art scene of the 1970s and 1980s. He becomes the brightest star of neo-Expressionist painting and one of the most successful painters of his time, and even develops a friendship with Andy Warhol (David Bowie). But Basquiat's tumultuous life, specifically his addiction to heroin, overshadows his rise to fame, threatening all.
