Ferlinghetti:

A Rebirth of Wonder
Event detail
Add to my calendar
 

In this definitive documentary film, director Christopher Felver crafts an incisive, sharply wrought portrait of Ferlinghetti that reveals his true role as a catalyst to so many literary careers and the Beat movement itself.  Felver's one-on-one interviews, made over a decade with Ferlinghetti, touch upon a rich melange of characters and events that began to unfold in postwar America.
