The Beat movement appeared in response to the extremely conservative social and cultural fabric of the post World War II era, in which the “red scare” was at its height. Join us to learn more about writers and poets emerging during the time period of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road turned to cinema to further explore their writings and statements. In this program, we will be finishing the San Francisco Beats and Los Angeles Beats.

He has shown and lectured about the importance of Avant Garde/Experimental Cinema in Tokyo, Havana, SFMOMA, Argentina; San Francisco Film Society, Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao; Austria, Warsaw, Germany, among many other notable museums, universities, film festivals and organizations around the globe.
