The seventh art takes centre stage thanks to Lo Schermo dell'Arte

Cinema La Compagnia

On 12 June, at 9.00 pm, the seventh art takes centre stage thanks to Lo Schermo dell'Arte film festival which at La Compagnia Cinema pays tribute to Jean-Michel Basquiat, thirty years after his death. The tale of the writer who took graffiti out of the street and into art galleries is told in the famous postmodern fable Downtown 81, interpreted by Basquiat himself, and in the documentary Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat by Sara Driver which has just come out in the United States and will be premiered in Italy in the presence of the director.
