Into the middle of this cultural explosion comes the documentary-style film Downtown 81 (aka New York Beat Movie), an imaginative, fantastical drama shot circa 1981, featuring at-the-time obscure artists poised for fame such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Debbie Harry, Fab Five Freddy and Lee Quinones to name a few.
