From NW Film Forum:

Hello Seattle Poetics LAB,

Bob KaufmanWe are reaching out to you about a rare Seattle presentation of And When I Die, I Won’t Stay Dead, at Northwest Film Forum on Capitol Hill June 29-July 2nd.

And When I Die, I Won’t Stay Dead (2015) is a documentary that tells the story of poet Bob Kaufman, sometimes considered “the American Rimbaud.” The film is directed by Billy Woodberry, who was part of the LA Rebellion—a group of African American filmmakers that included Julie Dash, Charles Burnett, and Haile Germina who studied at UCLA Film School in the late 1960s-1980s and created a cinema alternative to Hollywood. Woodberry explains that his film “weaves [Kaufman’s] artistic triumph as a triumph of radical politics surviving and inspiring against all odds.”

Here’s a link to the film on our site with showtimes and more information.

We are excited to present a stunning DCP projection of the film on the big screen and would greatly appreciate if you passed the word along to your network in an email or via social media!

Best regards,

Joseph Eusebio

Northwest Film Forum
