Finding the Beat…


This is very exciting.

There is a movie in production that aims to uncover the meaning of “Beat” today. The producers are travelling across the United States, meeting with poets, artists and other creative types, to explore their relationship to the Beat Generation, and to investigate how its teachings are alive today.

If you are interested, please get in contact with “Finding the Beat…” through the details below.

Along the route they will be posting regular blog updates, so be sure to follow them online, too. Beatdom will be eagerly watching their journey, and several of our contributors will be participating.
