Abstract:

Jack Kerouac was a literary rock star, lionized by his fans. He was called the avatar of the Beat Movement, a new voice of his generation. But along with sudden fame and media hype came his unraveling. The film takes us back to the cabin he retreated to in the Big Sur woods, the Beat haunts of San Francisco and New York City for an unflinching look at the compeling events his book is based on. The story unfolds through Kerouac's prose, first hand recollections from Kerouac's contemporaries, as well as writers, poets, actors and musicians who have been deeply influenced by Kerouac's unique gifts. The visual imagery is set to original music composed and performed by recording artists Jay Farrrar of Son Volt and Benjamin Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie.
