Let it Come Down ( The Life of Paul Bowles) synopsis

A portrait of American expatriate novelist Paul Bowles, this documentary by Jennifer Baichwal focuses on his writing and his many years living in Morocco. Filmed shortly before his death, the production features an aged Bowles discussing his work, and includes input from his renowned Beat Generation contemporaries William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg. Bowles also addresses the high-profile cinematic adaptation of his novel "The Sheltering Sky," which Bowles roundly dismisses.
