What is Howl? Aside from it being one of the better known published works of Allen Ginsburg and of the “Beat Generation”, which sparked controversy and led to publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti to be jailed before both Howl and Ferlinghetti were cleared by law. Howl is also a film, an artistic one, that plays on the colorfulness of the present, the shady black and white memories of flashback, and the harsh mutation of colors during times of discomfort. It’s a swirl of living art, and color, and shapes, and stories of personal and societal renditions masked as entertainment to be decoded by whatever mechanisms you possess to unlock understanding. Its not for everyone, yet for anyone.
