Alan Berliner is the quintessential New York filmmaker. His latest film, 'Letter to the Editor' is a love letter to his home town and not least to the printed press – and to the art of telling a good story! – through forty years of photo clippings from the New York Times. Meet the award-winning director and essayist for a conversation about his work, which includes new classics such as 'The Family Album', 'Wide Awake' and 'First Cousin Once Removed'. Berliner's creative and artistically free approach to nonfiction stems from a fundamental curiosity about life as a modern human being, in all its quirky, fun and human aspects.
