Author of legendary bestseller Growing Up Absurd (1960), Paul Goodman was also a poet, an "out" homosexual (and family man), pacifist, visionary, co-founder of Gestalt therapy—and a moral compass for many in the burgeoning counterculture of the ’60s. PAUL GOODMAN CHANGED MY LIFE immerses you in an era of high intellect when New York was peaking culturally and artistically. Using a treasure trove of archival media—selections from Goodman’s poetry; quotes from Susan Sontag, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Noam Chomsky; plentiful footage of Goodman himself; plus interviews with his family, peers and activists—directorbJonathan Lee has woven together a rich portrait of an intellectual heavyweight whose ideas are long overdue for rediscovery. "It has a passionate, almost prophetic sense of the impact that a writer and thinker can have on his times and the future." - A.O. Scott, The New York Times
