SYNOPSIS

Face Addict tells the story of a unique and unrepeatable experience, that of the artistic community in New York between the late ‘70s and early ‘80s known as the downtown scene. From this scene emerged artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Jim Jarmusch, Deborah Harry, John Lurie and many others. With them Edo Bertoglio shared many experiences and passions.
