Premier latinoamericana

In 2011, Brookner started a project whose goal was to find and restore the films and archive footage of his late uncle –his earliest cinematic influence–, director Howard Brookner. This is his tribute to him, through the access to a treasure made of home movies and family photos.

“I knew he was going to die. And I knew death was a sad thing. But somehow nothing was sad around Howard.” The one talking is Aaron Brookner, director of this beautiful film, and he’s referring to his uncle, Howard Brookner, who died when Aaron was eight. The memories he cherished of his uncle, the way in which that figure became bigger and bigger and the consolidation of an inheritance (one filmmaker made another, and vice versa) flow into this film-river that tells it all: William Burroughs, Robert Wilson and Madonna (protagonists of Howard’s work); the wild New York of the ‘80s; the way in which art really shaped life, love and death. But apart from the names, what Uncle Howard tells perfectly is the way in which someone can pass through the world and leave indelible marks in people. MP
