I remember the best interview I have ever done in my life was with Francesca Alinovi” – Keith Haring. Who is Francesca Alinovi? It comes with not surprise that an Italian woman disappears from the art history. A promising art critic and curator, Francesca Alinovi was at the forefront of NYC’s “street art” movement — until she was found mysteriously murdered at 35 with 47 knife stabs. The documentary “OFF-Identikit” is a first step to bring back the voice of this legendary militant intellectual after 37 years of silence. Interviewers: Robert Kushner, Kenny Scharf, Toxic, Ann Magnuson, Stefan Eins, Daze and Crash. Unreleased interviews from 1981-1982 by Francesca Alinovi to Keith Haring, Rammellzee and A-One
