>Corso: The Last Beat (Film)


This film has been in the works since the mid 90s when a film crew seemed to be following Corso just about every where he went. In the later 90s, director Gus Reininger took Corso on a whirlwind tour of Europe, stopping off at among other places Shelley’s grave in Rome and the Oracle at Delphi. Back in the States director Reinniger was able to actually locate Corso’s mother, whom all assumed had vanished to Italy & this reuniting for the first time in over 50 years is caught on film.

Last week it premiered at the Taormina Film Festival in Sicily and won it’s “Best Film” award. We’re all anxious to see this film, but US dates have yet to be announced.
