A group of unconventional individuals meet in 1944, in New York. There are the young Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, Herbert Huncke and Jack Kerouac who furiously desire to accomplish themselves in puritan America just as the Existentialists have reshaped post war Paris in St Germain des Prés. Their rebellion flourishes via moral, mystic, sexual and geographical experiences - their ultimate adventure resides in their journeys on American roads. The Beats will strongly influence further generations with their stories and books - the ‘KGB’’s bibles: Howl by Ginsberg, The Naked Lunch by Burroughs and Kerouac’s On the Road. From the rioting French students of May 68 to London’s disobedient punks, from the Beatles to Kurt Cobain, many are the movements and individuals that have seen in the Beat Generation an influential free-spirited clique that adopted an anticipatory ‘sex, drugs and rock n’roll’ spirit.
