William S. Burroughs: A Man Within

Wednesday, November 17 - Tuesday, December 7, 2010

With never-before-seen archival footage and new interviews with colleagues and confidants—including John Waters, Iggy Pop, Gus Van Sant and David Cronenberg—this is a probing yet loving look at the writer whose art savaged conservative ideals, spawned countercultural movements and reconfigured 20th century culture. Narrated by Peter Weller, with a soundtrack by Patti Smith and Sonic Youth.
