Fame and Decadence in America
This 6-part docuseries explores the rise and fall of Alex Jordanov. We will follow the strange events that gravitated in his orbit in the 1980’s and 1990’s.
Between 1982 and 1999, the young French-Bulgarian became a major hip-hop character on the West Coast, and then a designer of contemporary art in vogue on the East Coast.
His story will walk us through the origins of rap in Los Angeles, taking place in “The Radio”nightclub, founded by A.J. and Ice-T. Through his lens, we will cross paths with iconic figures, who, at the time, were just trying to make it big in showbiz: Dr. Dre, Matt Groening, Anthony Kiedis, Sharon Stone, Madonna, Bruce Willis, Lyor Cohen, and even Jean-Michel Basquiat.
