From December 1980 to January 1981, Edo directed 'Downtown 81'. The film depicts a typical day of the young, then unknown artist Jean Michel Basquiat and gives an insight into the vibrant artistic and musical community of New York's downtown scene at the time. During filming, Basquiat and Balint met.
