And When I Die, I Won't Stay Dead 

Billy Woodberry

Documentary/ 89min / 2015





Born in 1925 and considered “the American Rimbaud” Kaufman contributes a singular voice to the poetic-political imaginings of world literature. AND WHEN I DIE I WON'T STAY DEAD is a journey into the ferocious beauty of his work, and his insistence that poetry is fundamental to humanity’s moral survival.
