Kenny Scharf When Worlds Collide was made over 11 years and features interviews and rare archival footage with Kenny Scharf, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Ed Ruscha, Dennis Hopper, Yoko Ono, Kaws, Marilyn Minter, and Jeffrey Deitch. The documentary shows Scharf's New York City arrival in the early 1980s where he quickly befriended Haring and Basquiat. This trio, amongst the fervent creative bustle of a depressed downtown scene, would soon take the art world by storm.
"This is the harrowing, heartbreaking, ultimately affirming story of Kenny Scharf, and I urge you to see it." -Norman Gidney, Film Threat
