You Never Had It: An Evening With Bukowski (2020)

Documentary 55m 2020

“Remarkably rich with insights into the writing craft and business, sex and love, humanity’s lack of humanity and more.” - San Francisco Chronicle

“_A time capsule which captures an iconic American author in his natural state and habitat… must-see footage for any Bukowski enthusiast._” - Hammer To Nail

A night of drinking and talking about sex, literature, childhood and humanity with the irreverent writer poet Charles Bukowski in his home in 1981. A story of tapes lost, found and brought back to life.

The documentary features never-before-seen footage from the writer, rediscovered by producer/journalist Silvia Bizio in her garage twenty years after Bukowski’s death.

Bukowski, Bizio and friends smoke cigarettes and drink wine over a languorous evening that provokes intimate discussions of sex, literature, childhood, and humanity from the irreverent writer and poet himself.

The release coincides with what would’ve been Charles Bukowski’s 100th birthday this year.
