‘Howl’ screens in San Francisco 

Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s “Howl” is screening in a special Sundance Film Festival event in San Francisco.

The drama — about how young Allen Ginsberg finds his voice, creates his landmark poem “Howl” and the obscenity trial that ensues — will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Sundance Kabuki Cinemas, 1881 Post St. It will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the filmmakers.

James Franco stars as Ginsberg, Mary-Louise Parker plays Gail Parker, Jon Hamm portrays Jake Ehrlich, Jeff Daniels is Professor David Kirk and David Strathairn plays Ralph McIntosh.

The screening is part of the inaugural Sundance Film Festival USA, an offshoot of the Park City, Utah, festival in which different original films are being shown in eight cities across the country on the same day.
