Neil Ortenberg and Daniel O‘Connor - Obscene

OBSCENE is the definitive film biography of Barney Rosset, the
influential publisher of Grove Press and the Evergreen Review. He
acquired the then fledgling Grove Press in 1951 and soon 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 Samuel Beckett, Kenzaburo
Oe, Tom Stoppard, Che Guevara, and Malcolm X, but he also battled the
government in the highest courts to overrule the obscenity ban on
groundbreaking works of fiction such as Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Tropic
of Cancer and Naked Lunch.
