Moments Like This Never Last
Official Poster for feature length documentary Moments Like This Never Last
Dash Snow rejected a life of privilege to make his own way as an artist on the streets of downtown New York City in the late 1990s. Developing from a notorious graffiti tagger into an international art star, he documented his drug- and alcohol-fueled nights with the surrogate family he formed with friends and fellow artists Ryan McGinley and Dan Colen before his death by heroin overdose in 2009. The film draws from Snow’s body of work and Cheryl Dunn’s own archival footage, to create a portrait that captures his all-too-brief life of reckless excess and creativity.
