A dazzling and witty look at the iconic NYC artist and the city he loved, featuring never-before-heard archival audio and new interviews
Keith Haring is undeniably a New York queer icon whose work continues to move and inspire.
This Spotlight film will premiere Sunday October 25 at 8PM and remain available through the end of the Festival
Through a dazzling dash of NYC-set archival footage, previously unheard audio interviews with the titular artist, and appealing appearances by the artist’s parents and fellow trailblazers on the ’80s downtown art scene (Fab 5 Freddy, Kenny Scharf, Bill T Jones), this definitive new doc is for fans—new and old—of the sensational artist and pop culture revolutionary. With candor, nostalgia and wit, KEITH HARING: STREET ART BOY honors a hometown hero who believed art should be accessible for all and inspired our great city—and the world—when it was in need of healing and human connection.
Presented in partnership with ACT UP
