Algren--The Movie is a feature length documentary that spotlights the creative legacy of one of the most underrated American writers of the twentieth century, Nelson Algren; recipient of the first National Book Award for Man With a Golden Arm (1950), Simone de Beauvior's "Chicago Bohemian" lover, a Beat writer before the Beats, a forerunner of the Gonzo movement. Through interviews with internationally known artists, writers, musicians and filmmakers, Algren will reestablish Algren's huge impact on countless literary and artistic champions, while defining American urban fiction.
