Bob Kaufman contributes a singular voice to the poeticpolitical imaginings of world literature. This film is a journey into the ferocious beauty of his work, and his insistence that poetry is fundamental to humanity’s moral survival.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
"Let the voices of dead poets/
Ring louder in your ears/
Than the screechings mouthed/
In mildewed editorials./
Listen to the music of centuries,/
Rising above the mushroom time."
I am in love with this documentary and the beautiful soul under its focus.
