Herbert Huncke, the “Beat Godfather”, was celebrated at a Centennial last year. See here – (and also here and here). (also here). For today, for the 101, a little quieter celebration.
Laki Vazakas, videographer, documentarian, and long-time friend of Huncke’s, (his full-length portrait Huncke and Louis is a definitive document, not to be missed) presents “Huncke’s Window“, an elegaic pan around Room 828 in the Chelsea Hotel (Huncke’s latter-day location).
Music is by Ross Goldstein.
