Howard Brookner was buried on his thirty-fifth birthday in 1989. Brookner died of AIDS right when he was on the brink of a promising filmmaking career. His nephew Aaron embarks on an intensely personal journey to discover his uncle’s film legacy, which captured the late ‘70s and early ‘80s Downtown NYC Cultural Revolution. Through conversations with family and close friends including Jim Jarmusch, Tom DiCillo and Sara Driver comes an exploration into the artistic determination of a filmmaker whose life was cut short.
