In 1983, the counter culture icon and author of the cult classic Naked Lunch (1959), William S. Burroughs (1914-1997), traveled throughout Scandinavia making a series of personal appearances. Twenty years later, filmmakers Lars Movin and Steen Moller Rasmussen found never-before-seen footage of his Copenhagen visit and set out on the road to record new material, telling the story of the acclaimed author's later work -- especially what is known as The Last Trilogy -- and his unique performance skills. The result is Words of Advice: William S. Burroughs On The Road, a compelling portrait of one our most enigmatic public figures. Featuring: James Grauerholz, John Giorno, Hal Willner, Jennie Skerl, Ann Douglas, Regina Weinreich, and others. Music by: Bill Laswell/Material, Patti Smith, Islamic Diggers, and others. Extras include a nearly complete documentation of Burroughs reading in Copenhagen, Oct. 29th 1983; a statement by Ann Douglas, Professor at Columbia University, New York; and two short tribute films, One Shot I + II."
