Product Notes

Director Christopher Felver has crafted an incisive, sharply wrought portrait of American poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti that explores his vital role as catalyst for numerous literary careers and for the Beat movement itself. Interviews with Ferlinghetti and other significant figures reveal a rich mélange of characters and events that unfolded in postwar America, including the publication of Allen Ginsberg's Howl, William S. Burroughs' Naked Lunch, and Jack Kerouac's on the Road. In 1953 Ferlinghetti opened City Lights Bookstore, which quickly evolved into an iconic institution symbolizing social change and literary freedom. Six decades later, it remains a cornerstone of America's literary and cultural history. Featuring Lawrence Ferlinghetti; Allen Ginsberg; Pulitzer Prize winner Gary Snyder; Dennis Hopper; former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins; Dave Eggers; Anne Waldman; Obie Award winner Michael McClure; PEN Open Book Award winner and author of the Dutchman Amiri Baraka; Ferlinghetti's oldest friend and proprietor of Shakespeare & Co., George Whitman; Bob Dylan and more.
