Advertising writer John Dullaghan makes his feature-length directorial debut with the documentary Bukowski: Born into This. The infamous poet, novelist, and screenwriter Charles Bukowski has made a legacy of writing about hard living in a unique prose style. His work paralleled his lifestyle, leading to the autobiographical novels »Women«, »Hollywood«, and »Post Office«. This documentary investigates his life through archival clips, interviews, and footage of the man himself. He appears at a public reading in San Franciscos City Lights Bookstore. Conversations with Bukowskis friends, including rock star Bono and actor Sean Penn, reveal some personal stories and experiences. Bukowski: Born into This was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize in the documentary competition at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. (Andrea LeVasseur)
