Summary
Filmed on location in Tangier, Morocco, where the American expatriate Paul Bowles, avant-garde composer-author best known for his 1949 novel "The Sheltering Sky," has lived permanently since 1947, this is a succinct introduction to one of the most inaccessible major literary figures of the 20th-century. At 84, the dapper octogenarian chiefly talks about his early career as a Broadway composer, his art, his ties to Moroccan culture, his drug use and his marriage to lesbian author Jane Auer Bowles. Like other modern Western romantics, Bowles fled into almost constant travel, seeking someplace not infected by the modern world, with its massive, inhumane bureaucracies, its authoritarian psychoanalytic programs, its war machines, its unswerving faith in rational thought. Morocco, at the confluence of a variety of cultures is neither a wholly African nor Arab land, where Bowles can always feel the full impact of distance
