Robert Creeley

Here is a 13 minute trailer for what will eventually be a feature length documentary, working title: ‘Black Mountain Blues’, the DVD release of which will have a number of extras, including complete readings of longer poems such as ‘Histoire de Florida’, a reading of his story ‘The Boat’ & an extensive interview in which Creeley speaks of his friendship with Allen Ginsberg. The film will draw on many hours of conversation with the poet, & will feature a number of his contemporaries, including Bobbie Louise Hawkins, Charles Bernstein, Susan Howe, Vincent Ferrini, Peter Coyote, Basil King & Michael McClure.

I hope that this film, which to date has been self-funded, will be released in the coming year.
