A short film documenting what was referred to as “The International Poetry Incarnation”. It was billed as Great Britain’s first full-scale “happening”, with the world’s leading Beat poets together under one roof at the Royal Albert Hall on June 11, 1965, for an evening of near-hallucinatory revelry. It came to be seen as one of the cultural high points of the Swinging Sixties.
Director: Peter Whitehead.
