GANG OF SOULS (1989) is Maria Beatty's engaging
documentary exploring the insights and influences of the
American Beat Poets. The film conveys their consciousness and
sensibility through candid interviews with William Burroughs,
Allen Ginsberg, Diane Di Prima, among others. Designed as
a tribute to them and to their spirit of artistic freedom, Gang of
Souls also weaves in additional commentary from contemporary
musicians, poets and writers such as Marianne Faithfull,
Richard Hell, Lydia Lunch and Henry Rollins. The film seeks to
truly capture the magic of the Beat generation and it's continuing
legacy. It brilliantly expands upon how the poets reached new
levels of creativity and inspired unprecedented social change.
