Uncle Howard Disutradarai oleh Aaron Brookner
Inevitably most viewers will find the documentary more engaging as a touchstone for a particular social-cultural history than as a portrait of one individual. But the accounts of Howard Brookner’s worsening health by Brad Gooch and James Grauerholz – and by Howard himself in a rediscovered video diary – are genuinely touching too.

An invaluable and extremely moving mosaic of personal, cultural, and social history… It is also a tribute to Howard’s energy and to a wildly improvisatory cultural moment when Beat, punk, and Minimalist aesthetics merged in New York No Wave. When people ask what New York was like in the ‘60s, I always send them to Jonas Mekas’s Walden: Diaries, Notes & Sketches (1969). For a glimpse of what followed, even as New York was supposedly a wasteland, no better place to start than Uncle Howard.

Aaron speaks affectingly, in voice-over, of his childhood memories of his uncle, and how they inspired him to become a filmmaker. While the movie has scintillating glimpses of such ‘80s New York luminaries as Madonna, Patti Smith and Laurie Anderson, it’s less a nostalgic evocation than a dual portrait of two intertwined artists, one gone too soon, the other just hitting his stride.
