New York, NY (January 31, 2012) - Kultur is proud to announce the release of Jack Kerouac: King of the Beats available on Blu-ray and DVD on February 28, 2012
Newly re-mastered in high definition from the original film print, this is the award-winning biography film of Jack Kerouac directed by John Antonelli. This film received honors at the Sundance, Montreal, Edinburgh and San Francisco International Film Festivals.
Jack Kerouac's writings, including his extraordinary novel On The Road, took American literature to new levels of creativity and in the process, inspired unprecedented social and cultural change.
Kerouac's life is examined through fascinating rare documentary footage and revealing interviews with some of Kerouac's most famous contemporaries and friends such as Allan Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and William Burroughs.
Beginning with his Catholic boyhood, through his development as one of the most important modern American authors, to his self-destructive demise at the age of 49, Jack Kerouac - King of the Beats Blu-ray is both an accurately detailed documentary and a moving drama.
"It's like being in a car with Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady as the pair barreled back and forth across the country." -The Denver Post
"This handsome, well-made documentary drama on the short-lived but prolific writer of the Beat Generation stands as one of the best films of its kind." -San Francisco Chronicle
