FILM HOWL - ROP EPSTEIN AND JEFFREY FRIEDMAN - 2010
Howl (2010) is a genre-bending biopic of famed beat poet Allen Ginsberg, portrayed by James Franco. The film, written and directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, is structured around the 1957 obscenity trial, launched after the publication of Ginsberg's Howl and Other Poems, which became a landmark case establishing a key legal precedent guaranteeing First Amendment rights for other controversial literary works. The film was scheduled to compete for the Golden Bear at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival and to be the Closing Night film at the Frameline Film Festival on June 27, 2010.
