Summary News Screenshots Videos
Director Alan Berliner documents five years worth of visits with his cousin and mentor, poet and translator Edwin Honig, as he gradually succumbs to the effects of Alzheimer's disease. Berliner illustrates the fragility of memory and self in an unsentimental yet wholly respectful and loving way, employing archive materials and family members to show us, and sometimes Honig himself, who this lost man used to be.
