ginsberg photo Artists’ Television Access and SFPL present several short films featuring Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, James Weldon Johnson, and Lawson Fusao Inada.

USA Poetry: Allen Ginsberg & Lawrence Ferlinghetti Upon returning home after a year spent in New York with Albert Maysles and other cutting-edge documentarians, San Francisco poet and KPFA co-founder Richard O. Moore began making dozens of cinema verite films for KQED, including the excellent 1963 James Baldwin profile Take This Hammer. In 1966 Moore directed eleven films about American poets, including this dual portrait of two San Francisco literary heroes, Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. In this film Ginsberg is seen at peak-beard in Berkeley, North Beach, and SF's Mission district after his recent expulsion from Communist-era Czechoslovakia. He recites a poem about his deportation, as well as (for the first time on film) "Howl," the poem that brought so much attention to the Beat movement a decade earlier. "Howl" publisher Ferlinghetti grabs the spotlight in this film's final section. He takes his pet Homer for a walk, strolling from his Potrero Hill home to North Beach, then stands in front of a brick wall in Chinatown and recites his own famous anti-establishment poem, “Dog.” (Richard Moore, 1966; 30 min.)

Also on the program: James Weldon Johnson (Stuart O'Brien, 1972; 12 min.) and ...I Told You So (a film on Lawson Fusao Inada by Alan Kondo, 1974; 18 min.).
