Panel Discussion: Kerouac and Cinema
Jack Kerouac’s acclaimed novel On the Road was published in 1957, at the heart of an American decade charged with dangerous politics – Cold War tension, nuclear threat and the rising call for Civil Rights. In an age of economic prosperity and the emerging teenager, and at a time when Brando, Dean and Presley would also leave their imprint, how did Kerouac and the Beats fit into this volatile landscape?
Our panelists are…
Simon Warner – Rock historian and co-editor of Kerouac on Record: A Literary Soundtrack
Simon Morrison – Music journalist and lecturer
Krishna Francis – Filmmaker and film lecturer
Screening: Pull My Daisy
Director: Robert Frank, Alfred Leslie
Writer: Jack Kerouac
Cast: Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso
With a screenplay by Kerouac, the short film Pull My Daisy from 1959, directed by Robert Frank and Alfred Leslie, captures scenes from the Beat life in a production both tender and comic.
