  • If you know these faces well, Exploded View is the place for you on Wednesday.

Hey, hep cats. Exploded View is hosting a night of Beat-era film and poetry and the whole shebang should be a real kick. The event is set to explore the hip scenes in both North Beach and Greenwich Village of the era both on the screen and in person. 

The "Can You Dig It, Man?" event will feature John Melillo of UA's English department presenting a selection of works from Housten Donham, Johanna Skibsrud and Christopher Cokinos. Then, on the big screen, you can catch Christopher Maclain’s "apocalyptic speedtrip" The End, Robert Frank’s Pull My Daisy (which is narrated by Jack Kerouac) and other rare films by Wallace Berman and Bruce Conner.

The whole event starts Wednesday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Exploded View Microcinmena. At just $5 a ticket, it shouldn't take much to noodle it out, ya dig?
