Uncle Howard Trailer

"I had been searching for my Uncle Howard's first film…" Pinball London has debuted a trailer for a doc called Uncle Howard, which has played at film fests all over the world including Sundance, Berlinale and the New York Film Festival most recently. Uncle Howard is made by Aaron Brookner, nephew of American director Howard Brookner, a little-known but well-regarded filmmaker who died of AIDS in the late 80s. In the film, Aaron goes on a journey to "discover his uncle's films and the legacy" - meeting people like Jim Jarmusch and Tom DiCillo along the way. It's a very fascinating, very personal doc but should be inspiring to other filmmakers. It's not my favorite doc I've seen this year, but it's one of the better ones. Take a look.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Aaron Brookner's doc Uncle Howard, in high def from Apple:

Uncle Howard Poster

Uncle Howard is an intertwining tale of past and present––the story of filmmaker Howard Brookner, whose work captured the late 70s and early 80s cultural revolution, and his nephew’s personal journey 25 years later to discover his uncle’s films and the legacy of a life cut short by the plague of AIDS. Uncle Howard is directed by filmmaker Aaron Brookner, nephew of Howard Brookner, of the film The Silver Goat previously. This doc first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and also played at Berlin, Seattle, Provincetown, Jerusalem, Buenos Aires Film Fests, as well as the New York Film Festival. Pinball London will release Uncle Howard in select theaters starting on November 18th. Interested in checking this out?
