Dir. Billy Woodberry, US, 2015, DCP, 89 min.

Billy Woodberry’s (Bless Their Little Hearts) much anticipated second feature film is a fascinating portrait of West Coast beat poet Bob Kaufman, often referred to as “the American Rimbaud.” And When I Die, I Won’t Stay Dead is a journey into the ferocious beauty of his work, and his insistence that poetry is fundamental to humanity’s moral survival.
