Barney’s Wall: Portrait of a Game Changer (Dir. Sandy Gotham Meehan) (82 mins.)
Barney Rosset, the owner of Grove Press, spent over 35 years rattling the smug, conservative, hallowed halls of publishing. Waving Grove’s banner of SEX & POLITICS, smashing rules and taboos, standing up for what he believed in one court battle after another, he published the most ground-breaking group of writers over the last half of the 20th century. From Miller to Beckett, Burroughs to the Beats and Robbe-Grillet, Pinter and Mamet, Malcolm X and Che Guevera, Grove’s list reads like a who’s who of the avant-garde in literature, film, theatre and revolutionary politics. In person: Sandy Gotham, Director/Producer; Williams Cole, co-director; David Leitner, cinematographer; Astrid Myers Rosset, co-producer.
