The definitive film about the unparalleled Beat Generation author.

A tender, vibrant portrait of the life and work of a Beat Generation icon, WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS: A MAN WITHIN is an intimate documentary that breaks the surface of the troubled and brilliant world of one of the greatest authors of all time. Burroughs was one of the first writers to break the boundaries of queer and drug culture in the 1950s. His novel Naked Lunch is one of the most recognized and respected literary works of the 20th century and has influenced generations of artists. WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS: A MAN WITHIN is a probing yet loving look at the man whose works savaged conservative ideals, spawned countercultural movements, and reconfigured 20th century culture.
