Independent Documentary Series: BURROUGHS THE MOVIE

Friday, March 6th, 2015 7:00 pm
$10
BUY TICKETS HERE WATCH THE TRAILER HERE Re-mastered and recently re-released, Burroughs:The Movie (1983) explores the life and times of controversial Naked Lunch author William S. Burroughs, with an intimacy never before seen and never repeated. The film charts the development of Burroughs’ unique literary style and his wildly unconventional life, including his travels from the American Midwest to North Africa and several personal tragedies. Burroughs: The Movie is the first and only feature length documentary to be made with and about Burroughs. The film was directed by the late Howard Brookner. It was begun in 1978 as Brookner's senior thesis at NYU film school and then expanded into a feature which was completed 5 years later in 1983.  Sound was recorded by Jim Jarmusch and the film was shot by Tom DiCillo, fellow NYU classmates and both very close friends of Brookner's. William S. Burroughs (February 5, 1914 - August 2, 1997) was an American author and visual artist, most well known for his literary works including Naked Lunch. Born in 1914 Burroughs was the grandson of William Seward Burroughs I, founder of the Burroughs Corporation. Beginning in 1932 Burroughs was educated at Harvard University, studying English, and anthropology as a postgraduate. Later he attended medical school in Vienna. Having been turned down by the US Navy and Office of Strategic Services in 1942 Burroughs ‘dropped out’ and became addicted to heroin, before befriending mutual founders of the Beat Generation Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac. “Rarely is a documentary as well attuned to its subject as Howard Brookner's Burroughs, which captures as much about the life, work and sensibility of its subject as its 86 minute format allows. Part of the film's comprehensiveness is attributable to William S. Burroughs' cooperation, since the author was willing to visit old haunts, read from his works and even playfully act out a passage from Naked Lunch for the benefit of the camera. But the quality of discovery about Burroughs is very much the director's doing, and Mr. Brookner demonstrates an unusual degree of liveliness and curiosity in exploring his subject.” -Janet Maslin - New York Times (October 8, 1983)

Geoff Muldaur & Jim Kweskin

Saturday, April 11th, 2015 7:30 pm
$28 General Seating
BUY TICKETS HERE Jim Kweskin and Geoff Muldaur play jug band favorites, old time jazz tunes, and classic country blues. They've perfected a low key, homemade sound that makes their skillful playing seem as easy as a casual conversation between close friends. The focus is on the music, and the music— even when it's heartbreaking —is always fun. They pick guitar and sing, and have also been known to perform on comb, kazoo, washboard, and jug. "There are only three white blues singers," guitar legend Richard Thompson once said. "And Geoff Muldaur is at least two of them." Whether Jim is the third is a matter of conjecture. Geoff and Jim met in 1963 when they shared a bill at the Community Church in Boston. When Vanguard Records offered Jim a recording contract, he recruited Geoff for his band. The Jim Kweskin Jug Band stayed together long enough to record six influential albums and bring their unique style of folk music to national TV on the Steve Allen Show, the Roger Miller Show, and the Al Hirt Show, as well as appearing at the Newport Folk Festival and in the psychedelic ballrooms of San Francisco, where they played with the likes of Big Brother and the Holding Company and the Doors. Geoff went on to do a stint with Paul Butterfield's Better Days and recorded a pair of albums with his future ex-wife Maria Muldaur before embarking on his own solo career. Jim and Geoff joined forces in 2008 in a roots music all-star tribute to the Mississippi Sheiks. Allmusic.com praised the album, Geoff Muldaur and the Texas Sheiks, as "sounding like a loose, freewheeling, front porch gathering of longtime friends." Join these longtime friends for their latest freewheeling gathering, right here at the Hall.
