Mann for th­ese rea­sons

NOW Magazine - Anniversary special - - Toronto Symphony Orchestra -

For as long as NOW’s been cov­er­ing film, Ron Mann has been mak­ing films for us to cover. He nabbed this cover story for the doc­u­men­tary Po­etry In Mo­tion, which fea­tured beat writ­ers like Allen Gins­berg and Wil­liam Bur­roughs and their new wave off­spring. We called it “the de­fin­i­tive film about con­tem­po­rary po­etry.” Since then, he’s made docs about comic books (Comic Book Con­fi­den­tial), a 60s dance craze (Twist), the war on weed (Grass), ac­tor and eco-ac­tivistWoody Har­rel­son (Go Fur­ther) and famed hot rod and cus­tom car designer Ed “Big Daddy” Roth (Tales Of The Rat Fink).
