This appears to be from the documentary A Farewell to Beat, a film about Italian writer and translator Fernanda Pivano. Pivano is most famous for introducing any number of 20th Century American writers (Hemingway among them) to the people of Italy. As you'll see, one of these writers was Jack Kerouac, whose books she translated, and who has become immensely popular in that country thanks to her efforts. According to the film info on YouTube, the interview with him is from 1966, just three years before his death. Hard not to see how much damage alcohol had done to Kerouac toward the end of his.
