Well, we are coming up on April, the cruelest month, the month of poetry, so it only seems fitting that we’re going to give away a copy of this docu from MVD. Here’s the skinnee from their site:
GANG OF SOULS (1989) is Maria Beatty’s engaging documentary exploring the insights and influences of the American Beat Poets. The film conveys their consciousness and sensibility through candid interviews with William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Diane Di Prima, among others. Designed as a tribute to them and to their spirit of artistic freedom, Gang of Souls also weaves in additional commentary from contemporary musicians, poets and writers such as Marianne Faithfull, Richard Hell, Lydia Lunch and Henry Rollins. The film seeks to truly capture the magic of the Beat generation and it’s continuing legacy. It brilliantly expands upon how the poets reached new levels of creativity and inspired unprecedented social change.
