Summary
Based on the third act of Jack Kerouac's play THE BEAT GENERATION, Alfred Leslie's PULL MY DAISY (1959; 29 min.) is a ground-breaking work, combining documentary and experimental techniques, that captures some of the giants of the Beat era during an evening together in Greenwich Village. Co-directed by Robert Frank, the film features narration by Kerouac and appearances by Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, Larry Rivers and others. Selected for the National Film Archives in 1996. The Museum of Modern Art program also includes a look at Leslie's THE LAST CLEAN SHIRT (1964; 39 min.), another important, formally daring work, and BIRTH OF A NATION 1965 (1997; 24 min.)
