This week is 2016's And When I Die, I Won't Stay Dead

Legendary Beat figure Bob Kaufman considered poetry a key to human survival, an idea made all the more legitimate by the longevity it's granted: the things he saw, heard, tasted, felt, and, most of all, thought were preserved in his work. Embodying the spirit of those efforts, the new film from Billy Woodberry is perhaps the closest we can come to knowing the man and his time.

The cumulative effect of AND WHEN I DIE is to understand a familiar, over-exposed era with new eyes, thanks in no small part to the honest assessment provided by some of New York's Beat generation some half-century removed.

Official Selection at the Vienna International Film Festival. Official Selection at the San Francisco International Film Festival.

"An oral biography nimbly combining rich, varied archival footage with talking-head present-day interviews..." - Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter
