The life and times of the revolutionary writer!

Jack Kerouac’s novel On The Road, with its revolutionary, stream-of-consciousness style, changed the face of American popular culture. This is both a detailed documentary and moving chronicle of the great beat poet’s life, intercutting archival photographs, film clips, book readings and scholarly commentary with a dramatic account of Kerouac’s catholic boyhood; his development as one of the most important modern American authors; and his self destructive demise at the age of 47.

Includes fascinating interviews with Allan Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and William Burroughs. A must for all Jack Kerouac fans, as well as anyone with an interest in the American beat generation.
