Description
Howard Brookner was a pioneering documentary filmmaker who vividly captured a bygone era of 1980s New York City. Director Aaron Brookner digs through the archives of his uncle’s footage to present a personal homage of a man he idolize but the world at large knows nothing about. The documentary is thematically positioned between home movies (illuminating the nephew-uncle relationship), the Chelsea Hotel that became a haven for outsider artists, and St. Vincent’s Hospital where Howard and thousands of others were treated for AIDS-related illnesses. Uncle Howard is a moving tribute to an artist—and an uncle—who died far too young.
