Screening of “Howl” at Lincoln Plaza

The Film:It’s San Francisco in 1957, and an American masterpiece is put on trial. HOWL recounts this dark moment using three interwoven threads: the tumultuous life events that led a young Allen Ginsberg (CC ’48) to find his true voice as an artist, society’s reaction, and mind-expanding animation that echoes the startling originality of the poem itself. All three coalesce in a genre-bending hybrid that brilliantly captures a pivotal moment—the birth of a counterculture.

More: After the film screening, Columbians can participate in an exclusive talk back with Peter Hale and Bob Rosenthal from the Allen Ginsberg Trust, who are also producers for the film, and a Columbia moderator. Look here to view the trailer.

When/Where: September 30, 7:30PM – 9:30PM, at the Lincoln Plaza Cinemas (1888 Broadway). Check
