Ferlinghetti: A Rebirth of Wonder
Directed & Produced by Christopher Felver
The poet and painter, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, is among the world’s living monuments to arts and letters.
For well over a half-century, Ferlinghetti helped shape the currents of poetry and literature with his forceful engagement with society and an ideological position that often found him at odds with the political currents of his day. Ferlinghetti’s quiet, behind the scenes demeanor and disarming mien may have assuaged, or even fooled, certain opponents, while in reality, he was a literary mercenary, a rebel at the forefront of our own cultural revolution.
