Thursday, February 25, 1:00pm: Howl (2010)
Starring: James Franco, Jeff Daniels, Jon Hamm, David Strathairn, Treat Williams, Allen Ginsberg
Directors: Rob Epstein, Jeffrey Friedman
James Franco delivers a career-defining performance as poet Allen Ginsberg. Through his search for personal and creative expression, Ginsberg writes Howl, and must contend with a bizarre obscenity trial.
As Allen Ginsberg talks about his life and art, his most famous poem is illustrated in animation while the obscenity trial of the work is dramatized.
Please note: Reel Talk provides the opportunity to explore diverse and complex films. Due to adult content and mature themes, viewer and participant discretion is advised.
*Registration required to participate in discussions.
We look forward to seeing you there!
