On Ferlinghetti’s 100th birthday – a special screening with the filmmaker in person
On the very date of Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s 100th birthday, photographer, filmmaker and friend Christopher Felver will present a special screening of his definitive documentary on San Francisco’s great poet, artist, publisher and civil libertarian, who was also a catalyst for numerous literary careers and for the Beat movement itself.
Filmed over several years, Ferlinghetti is a lively and intimate portrait, including extensive interviews with the man himself, as well as other figures, such as Allen Ginsberg, Michael McClure, Dennis Hopper, Dave Eggers, Amiri Baraka, Gary Snyder and many others.
The bestselling poet in modern literature, Ferlinghetti means so much more to the tradition of American literature and thought.
