About the event

Film - Howl Dir: Jeffrey Friedman, Rob Epstein 2010 84 mins(15). As well as having the audacity to be a movie entirely about a single poem, Jeffrey Friedman and Rob Epstein's Howl tugs Allen Ginsberg and his fellow Beats out from under a mountain of insults, clichés and calumny. Howl ... whose loping, loosely strung lines hum the fevered, incantatory spirits of Blake and Whitman, Rimbaud and Verlaine, regains here some of the power to shock and delight. John Patterson, The Guardian Sat 19 Feb 2011. Tickets: £6. For more information visit: www.poetry-festival.com
