This definitive documentary is an incisive portrait of literary polymath Lawrence Ferlinghetti. In one-on-one interviews, he reflects on events that began to unfold in postwar America – including the publication of Ginsberg’s Howl, Burroughs’ Naked Lunch, and Kerouac’s On the Road – as well as the Vietnam War, the sexual revolution, and the founding of City Lights. Ferlinghetti reads his poems, discusses his activism, and offers unguarded insight into nine decades of his life. Features appearances by Allen Ginsberg, Dennis Hopper, Dave Eggers, and more.
