Jack Kerouac Tribute

This week our own George Wallace takes us on a literary tour of Northport, Long Island, New York, in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the publication of Jack Kerouac’s novel “On the Road”. George shares his intimate knowledge of Northport and Jack’s association with it in this contemporary on location video.  

We made this video to participate in a larger celebration in France, “Memory Babe, A Tribute To Jack Kerouac”. Which, according to its organizers, “…on the 23 of September 2007, an artistic installation will celebrate in Paris, France, the 50th year of the publication of "On the Road", the mythical book by Jack Kerouac." 

 

During the afternoon and all night long, they will organize an artistic installation including films, music, photography, lectures, text, etc. They invited all to “...make a video on the road, where you are, everywhere in the world, upload it on youtube (or any other site) and send us (them) the address of your video. This video will be included in Jack's channel (http://www.youtube.com/tribute2kerouac) and projected during the installation."
