Literature

Ferlinghetti

A 82' documentary directed in 2009 by Christopher Felver

The poet and writer Lawrence Ferlinghetti is an iconic presence in the world of arts and letters. He is also the co-founder of City Lights Booksellers & Publishers in San Francisco as well as a painter and a liberal activist.

For well over half a century he has helped shape the currents of poetry and literature through his forceful engagement with society. Armed with an ideological position that often found him at odds with the political dogma of his day, Ferlinghetti became the best selling poet of the modern era in the USA (A Coney Island of the Mind - 1958, a collection of poems that has been translated into nine languages, with sales of over 1 million copies), a literary mercenary and a rebel at the forefront of a cultural revolution.
