The documentary "Blank City" deals with the "No Wave'" art, music, and film movement of the late 70s and 80s in Lower Manhattan (think the days of Sonic Youth and DNA) and we have some info and a link to the trailer for you.

Featured in the documentary are artists, musicians, and actors who were integral during this movement, including Debbie Harry, Steve Buscemi, Fab 5 Freddy, and John Waters.

Synopsis: Take a trip back to a time when New York City wasn't all glitz and glamour as filmmaker Celine Danhier offers a look at the birth of "No Wave Cinema" and the vibrant art scene that exploded out of the East Village in the late '70s. In the years before Ronald Reagan took office, Manhattan was in ruins. But true art has never come from comfort, and it was precisely those dire circumstances that inspired artists like Jim Jarmusch, Lizzy Borden, and Amos Poe to produce some of their best works. Taking their cues from punk rock and new wave music, these young maverick filmmakers confronted viewers with a stark reality that stood in powerful contrast to the escapist product being churned out by Hollywood. Interviews with the aforementioned artists as well as Debbie Harry, Steve Buscemi, John Waters, John Lurie, Lydia Lunch, and Thurston Moore reveal how a group of young visionaries pooled their resources to birth a film movement that produced some of the most challenging art of the 20th century.
