The Walker Art Center presents the area film premiere of Howl on Thursday, September 30, at 7:30 pm in the Walker Cinema with directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman in attendance.

The Walker’s area premiere is complemented by its screenings of several other films featuring Ginsberg: Pull My Daisy, another Beat-era milestone that was part of Friedman and Epstein’s research, and which features some of the only known footage of the poet from the late 1950s; the award-winning documentary The Life and Times of Allen Ginsberg; and Stockhausen’s Originale: Doubletakes (part of the Walker exhibition 1964), in which Ginsberg plays “The Poet,” participating in a performance that dissolves boundaries between artistic disciplines, just as Howl does with film genres some 45 years later.
