The AV Club has premiered the first trailer for the upcoming indie biopic Howl, which will arrive in theaters nationwide on September 24. Click below to watch the first trailer from this Sundance hit, which takes a look at the life of Beat Generation poet Allen Ginsberg.

Documentarians Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman will make their narrative writing, producing and directing debut with the 1950s-era tale, focusing on the obscenity trial launched to censor Ginsberg's groundbreaking book-length poem. The pair were approached by the Allen Ginsberg Trust to make a film commemorating the 50th anniversary of Howl.
