YOU NEVER HAD IT: AN EVENING WITH CHARLES BUKOWSKI

Producer and journalist Silvia Bizio introduces an evening with writer Charles Bukowski by recounting her time with the author and the discovery of an extraordinary time capsule that lead to the documentary’s creation.

“You Never Had It: An Evening with Charles Bukowski” is based on a video interview conducted by Bizio in January of 1981 with Bukowski at his home in San Pedro, California. It was a long night of smoking cigarettes and drinking wine with Bukowski and his soon-to-be wife, Linda Lee Beighle, talking about all kinds of subjects, from writers to sex, love and humanity.

The interview was shot on Umatic tapes that have been digitized and edited along with new shots in Super8 of scenes of Los Angeles today and poems read by Bukowski.

“You Never Had It” is a time capsule which captures an iconic American author in his natural state and habitat. It is must-see footage for any Bukowski enthusiast.
