First Cousin Once Removed

“I’m interested in your experience. Who you are right now…Is there anything you’ll never forget?”  When treasured American filmmaker  Alan Berliner  poses these questions to distinguished poet and translator  Edwin Honig , there’s more at play than an intellectual tit for tat.

Instead of focusing on Honig’s plight however, Berliner offers a more intriguing mix of neurological mystery, striking moments of humor and genuine ode to a friend, mentor and relative.
