About:
A once-celebrated but long out-of-the-spotlight contemporary artist emerges from the shadows.

I previously wrote about the doc for Nantucket’s program, saying:
Before Banksy, there was Richard Hambleton. A pioneer of street art, the painter took the early 1980s New York City art scene by storm alongside contemporaries like Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, painting black silhouettes around the city in the dead of night. But at the height of his fame, Hambleton succumbed to personal demons and vanished. Rediscovered decades later, he stands on the brink of a comeback – director Oren Jacoby chronicles the difficulties that the troubled artist faces despite this potential second chance.
