Educational DVD Price $100.00

Description Reviews / Awards Clips / Trailers
 

Both wry travelogue and heartbreaking tale of love lost, The Japanese Sandman adapts a letter William S. Burroughs wrote to Allen Ginsberg in 1953. Told in Burroughs' caustically funny voice, cocaine snorting in Panama and post-prom handjobs in 1931 St. Louis dissolve into a meditation on memory and loss

Actor/performance artist John Fleck leads a stand-out cast through Burroughs' recounting of scoring opiates and boys in Panama and, in the letter's P.S., a love affair with farm boy Billy Brandshinkel in the Ozark's of his youth. Imperial Teen's Roddy Bottum provides the lively and compelling score.
