Show Notes

  • An Evening with Bukowski –  Premiered at the Venice Film Festival. This documentary is based on a video interview conducted by journalist Silvia Bizio in January of 1981 with writer Charles Bukowski at his home in San Pedro, California. It was a long night of endless talk while smoking cigarettes and drinking red wine with Bukowski and his soon to be wife, Linda Lee Beighle; he talks about all kind of subjects: literature, his relation with other writers,  sex, poetry, love, humanity. The interview was shot on Umatic tapes which have been digitized and edited; new images of today’s Los Angeles were shot with a Super8 camera, a poignant counterpoint to poems read by the same Bukowski.
