Film screening: Kill Your Darling

Date and place: Tuesday 8 October 2019 at 5pm  - Room F31, Tajovského 40

Kill Your Darlings isabout when Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs and Jack Kerouac first met at New York’s Columbia University in 1943 and ended up entangled in a sordid murder case. Kerouac and Burroughs actually co-wrote a novelization of the story (And the Hippos Were Boiled in Their Tanks), but it wasn’t even published till 2008. It’s an untold chapter that reveals a great deal about the genesis of the Beat Generation
