|Online||Summer 2021||Ginsberg�s Karma is an insightful and entertaining look at a transformative phase in the poet Allen Ginsberg�s life -- his first trip to India in 1962 would transform him into America�s first hippie. While in India, he experimented with mind-altering drugs, spiritualism, and became a political activist. The documentary follows poet Bob Holman as he travels to India to piece together Ginsberg�s life there, and interviews many of the writers who knew him during his trip. Ginsberg�s adventures and what he experienced in India are the bridge between the Beat generation of the 1950s to the hippie counterculture of the 1960s in America. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Distributed by Virginia Quarterly Review. Watch free at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cl0iH7xUENo|
