Trailer for the documentary Excavating Taylor Mead.

Excavating Taylor Mead is the story of one man's journey and struggle for survival in America's independent film and art community. Known primarily in the inner circles of New York's art historians and followers of Warhol, Mead's resume demonstrates how he may be one of underground film's most prolific yet overlooked artists.

Filmed over a four-year period and spanning nearly eight decades, we follow Taylor's eviction from his lower east side apartment to co-starring in Jim Jarmusch's Coffee & Cigarettes. Filtered through his life choices, Excavating Taylor Mead is an endearing character study of someone who has chosen a unique artistic path.
