‘Kill Your Darlings’ Screening and Discussion with Producer Christine Vachon

October 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Discussion with producer Christine Vachon will follow.
John Krokidas, 104 minutes, USA, 2013.
In the early 1940s, Allen Ginsberg is an English major at Columbia University, only to learn more than he bargained for. Dissatisfied by the orthodox attitudes of the school, Allen finds himself drawn to iconoclastic colleagues like Lucien Carr, William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac. Together, this gang would explore bold new literary ideas that would challenge the sensibilities of their time as the future Beat Generation. However, for all their creativity, their very appetites and choices lead to more serious transgressions that would mark their lives forever.
