KEITH HARING, RESTLESS

[DOCUMENTARY]

During a brief but intense career that spanned the 1980s, Keith Haring spent most of his time traveling and working in dozens of cities around the world. It was in a remote fishing village on the coast of Brazil that he found a much-needed change of pace for his jet-setting life. In several month-long trips to Serra Grande, he relaxed with a group of artist friends creating drawings and paintings that were both personal and informal. In Brazil he would spend his days creating murals at Kenny Scharf’s house, painting fisherman shacks along the beach and making drawings inspired by the local landscape and people. The documentary recreates Haring’s experience at the same exact location, while following Scharf’s restoration of a mural painted in 1986 on a cabana floor in front of the beach. By diving into that seminal phase of the artist’s life, Scharf and other close friends reminisce about Haring’s career, personality and creative process. The film follows the detailed restoration process of the mural in beautifully shot images that transport viewers to the beaches of Brazil. Produced in collaboration with the Keith Haring Foundation, the documentary was a highlight at the Rio Film Festival and it was shown as part of a Haring retrospective at the Musee d”Art Moderne della Ville de Paris.
