Now for some more upbeat news. We’d been hearing rumors, but it’s now official that Oscilloscope Laboratories have picked up Yony Leyser’s William Burroughs documentary A Man Within. They plan a near simultaneous release (September) with Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s Howl. Both films you’re no doubt somewhat familiar with if you’ve been following our blog, as it seems we mention them almost ad nauseum. All for a good reasonof course..
