In New York’s vibrant music scene of the 70s and 80s, Arthur Russell bridged the gap between the artistic vanguard and dancefloor hits, The Kitchen and Studio 54. A seminal avant-garde composer, singer-songwriter, cellist and disco producer, he was on the cusp of popular success before his untimely death from AIDS in 1992. As a new generation discovers his music, this kaleidoscopic, inventive documentary combines rare archival footage and interviews with family, friends and colleagues — including Philip Glass and Allen Ginsberg, a lifelong mentor and collaborator — to tell the story of a groundbreaking artist.

Does Jens live in NYC now? I thought I walked by him once near McCarren Park this summer.
