Abstract:

When Paul Bowles moved to Tangiers, Morocco in 1947, it was a sanctuary for artists, writers, and the wealthy to do as they pleased without fear of prosecution. Soon, his friends from America began visiting: Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, Gore Vidal, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, and many others. The Beats and the hippies all searched him out, lured by the mysterious, exotic world he depicted in his books, notably The Sheltering Sky. Based on an exclusive series of interviews with Bowles shortly before his death, and anecdotes provided by his friends and collaborators, including Gore Vidal, Bernardo Bertolucci, John Waters, Ruth Fainlight, Edmund White, William Burroughs, Francis Bacon and many others, this fascinating documentary reveals a daring and visionary life that went way beyond sexuality.
