"Fried Shoes, Cooked Diamonds" a film by Costanzo Allione


Featuring Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, Timothy Leary, Gregory Corso, Diane Di Prima, Peter Orlovsky, Meredith Monk, Amiri Baraka, Anne Waldman, Miguel Pinero, Miguel Algarin and Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Fried Shoes, Cooked Diamonds portrays a joyous reunion of Beat poets at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado. With a very personal narration by Ginsberg, the film shows the warmths and ease of interchange between the poets. They read their poetry to each other, discuss their thoughts on writing, politics, religion and the adventure of consciousness, and participate in a very moving nuclear protest at Rocky Flats, where Corso reads "Bomb" and Ginsberg his "Plutonium Ode".
