“The Radiant Child” Basquiat Documentary to Open in 25 Cities, Including…Milwaukee
This is all packaging and marketing. Starting with a new poster and ending with the trailer and teaser.
The teaser is close to the earlier one I showcased in March.
And yeah, Milwaukee’s on the list of 25; it’s playing at the Union Theater on October 13. A much earlier gig, the Black Harvest Film Festival in Chicago, August 6-September 2, will present it on Friday, August 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Gene Sisket Film Center.
Would a Madison venue have hosted such an event?
Oh, hell no. Even if they had waited until the next film festival.
If he had lived, Jean-Michel Basquiat would have been fifty years old this year.
