  • Paul Goodman Changed My Life Trailer

    Trailer

    10/19/11

    Trailer for the documentary Paul Goodman Changed My Life. Paul Goodman was once so ubiquitous in the American zeitgeist that he merited a cameo in Woody Allen's Annie Hall. Author of legendary bestseller Growing Up Absurd (1960), Goodman was also a poet, 1940s out queer (and family man), pacifist, visionary, co-founder of Gestalt therapy-and a moral compass for many in the burgeoning counterculture of the '60s. Paul Goodman Changed My Life immerses you in an era of high intellect (that heady, cocktail-glass juncture that Mad Men has so effectively exploited) when New York was peaking culturally and artistically; when ideas, and the people who propounded them, seemed to punch in at a higher weight class than they do now. Using a treasure trove of archival multimedia-selections from Goodman's poetry (read by Garrison Keillor and Edmund White); quotes from Susan Sontag, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Noam Chomsky; plentiful footage of Goodman himself; plus interviews with his family, peers and activists-director/producer Jonathan Lee and producer/editor Kimberly Reed (Prodigal Sons) have woven together a rich portrait of an intellectual heavyweight whose ideas are long overdue for rediscovery.moreless
  • Paul Goodman Changed My Life Trailer B

    Trailer

    10/19/11

    Second trailer for Paul Goodman Changed My Life. Called "the most influential man you've never heard of," Paul Goodman was a stern but confidence-inspiring social critic, a poet (and regular at Black Mountain), an out-of-the-closet queer (in 40s America!), family man, anarchist and public intellectual whose writings and philosophy of life had a resounding impact on all who met him. Growing Up Absurd (1960) is his most famous work--and newly relevant to the recent riots in London and Vancouver--but the range of his writings is quite simply amazing. Jonathan Lee's documentary captures the power of the man and his ideas through interviews with family, peers and activists whose encounters with Goodman changed their lives. Rich archival footage and readings by Goodman and others (including Garrison Keillor, Edmund White and the Living Theater's Judith Malina) from his published works and private journals testify to the scope of his learning and influence, as well as his larger-than-life personality. A kind of forefather to the Beats, he made his stamp on the 60's and notably participated at the famous 1967 Dialectics of Liberation conference in London, which is the subject of discussion at events planned at SFU and the Vancity Theatre in November.moreless
