A madcap romp through the 1980’s NYC downtown art scene amid the colorful career of ambitious painter, Edward Brezinski, hell-bent on making it. Brezinski’s quest for fame gives an intimate portrait of the art world’s attitude towards success and failure, fame and fortune, notoriety and erasure.
A series of eccentric characters reveal the unsung painter by their memories of both Edward’s antics and his extreme artistic drive while exposing the history of the Lower East Side art movement in the 80s from an insider’s point of view. Through an investigation in the south of France, we also unearth the truth about what happened to Brezinski and his mysterious “death” in the Cote d’Azur.
