- July 10, Tamra Davis, Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child, Documentary, 88 minutes, 2010
In his short career, Jean-Michel Basquiat was a phenomenon. He became notorious for his graffiti art in the late 1970s, sold his first painting to Deborah Harry for $200 and became best friends with Andy Warhol. Appreciated by both the art cognoscenti and the public, Basquiat was launched into international stardom. However, soon his cult status began to override the art that had made him famous in the first place. Director Tamra Davis pays homage to her friend in this definitive documentary.
- August 14, Kelly Duane, The Two Killings of Sam Cook, Documentary, 74 minutes, 2019
An investigation into the circumstances and controversy surrounding Sam Cooke’s murder. With Sam Cooke, Quincy Jones and Smokey Robinson.
