A week in the life of Allen Ginsberg spent with Hungarian writer, poet, and translator Istvan Eorsi, and a small camera crew in the streets of New York. Sharing thoughtful discussions with the famed American Beat poet, Eorsi himself was known for his sarcastic, often abrasive style and passionately held political views on revisionist Marxism and the 1956 Hungarian revolution, for which he was subsequently jailed. Eorsi died of leukemia in 2005, but his transnational engagement with the poetry is kept alive in this documentary. "Vivid, funny, and filled with all manner of spontaneous poetry."
