What’s it all about? – A combination of Allan Ginsberg talking about his life, animated scenes of his poem and the obscenity trial that followed the release of his poem ‘Howl’
Notes and scribbles
- Was unaware of this story, and the poem, and Allan Ginsberg if I’m honest.
- Animated scenes inspired by Ginsberg and his poem Howl.
- Mixture of interview, courtroom, animation combined with the reading of the poem.
- Thought Franco was really good, should probably see if there’s Ginsberg stuff online to make a comparison.
