Obscene is the definitive film biography of the influential publisher Barney Rosset. In 1951, Rosset acquired the Grove Press and embarked on a tumultuous career of publishing and political engagement that continues to inspire today’s defenders of free expression. Not only was he the first American publisher of acclaimed authors Che Guevara and Malcolm X, he also battled the government to overrule the obscenity ban on groundbreaking works of fiction. The same unyielding energy he used to publish works such as Allen Ginsberg’s Howl also brought him close to destruction. 

This film features music by Bob Dylan, The Doors, Warren Zevon, Jim Carroll, X and Patti Smith, and never-before-seen footage. Color, Black and White. Running Time 90 Mins. plus extras.
