Can You Dig It, Man? : BEAT FILM & POETRY

 EV delves into the riches of hip scenes past and present with an exploration of the crossover between film and poetry in the BEAT enclaves of North Beach & Greenwich Village. Man of letters John Melillo makes the scene and presents a selection of readers (including Housten Donham, Johanna Skibsrud and  Christopher Cokinos) re-interpreting BEAT writings. On the celluloid side, we are screening SF’s Christopher Maclain’s apocalyptic speedtrip The End, Robert Frank’s Pull My Daisy (narrated by Kerouac) + rare films by Wallace Berman + Bruce Conner !!
