About the Movie
"NY84" follows the adventures of three young artists in the downtown New York art scene in the early 1980s. Young and carefree, Kate, Anton, and Keith party, photograph, paint, sing, and play their way through the clubs and lofts of Alphabet City. The party ends in 1984 when Anton and Keith contract a mysterious illness known as the "gay cancer". We gain an intimate glimpse into their creative and emotional lives as the trio lose their youth and innocence.
'NY84' deftly captures the city and an era in the shadow of AIDS”
Gary Goldstein – the LA TIMES
NY 84 is a very unique film which will give you a glimpse into the art and music scene in NY in 1984 in the lives of three adventurous people. It was inspired by the artists and musicians at this time which included Robert Mapplethrorpe and singer Patti Smith. I observed the craziness of 1984 both in LA and NY with sex, drugs and rock and roll. It was a sad time seeing a few of my gay friends struggle and die in this horrific epidemic. Award winning writer/director Cyril Morin recreates this time period in 1984 and I was honored to be part of it as the doctor in this film.
