In partnership with Metro Cinema, the Edmonton Poetry Festival is pleased to present this experimental film about iconic poet Allen Ginsberg. Starring James Franco, this 2010 movie explores the forming of the Beat Generation, reconstructing and moving between Ginsberg’s early life, a re-enactment of his poem “Howl”, and his obscenity trial in 1957. Prior to the screening, local poet Michael Gravel will regale the audience with his beat-inspired riffs and lyrics.
