Howl, The Story of Allen Ginsberg

“Howl”, the latest film by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, tells the story of Allen Ginsberg and his groundbreaking poem “Howl”. It stars James Franco as Allen Ginsberg and is scheduled for release on September 24th.

A renegade artist breaking down barriers in search of love and redemption…. an hallucinogenic ride through a prophetic masterpiece that rocked a generation…. a work of art put on trial for obscenity…. HOWL tells the unlikely story of a poem that sparked the counter-culture.
