(Jonathan Lee / 2011 / USA / 89 minutes / documentary)

Philosopher, poet, novelist, sociologist, pacifist, psychologist, anarchist, open bisexual and spokesperson for a generation, Paul Goodman had been dazzling and infuriating America for more than a decade before his death in 1972. This documentary, the first, introduces Goodman to a new generation. The continuing relevance and bite of his critique has startled readers in the US, where his books are being re-issued in new editions. Writer Horatio Morpurgo treated the student protests from a 'Goodmanite' perspective in a recent book of his own and will give a short introduction. The director Jonathan Lee will be present at this one-off screening, which will be followed by a discussion.
