FIRST COUSIN ONCE REMOVED
Shot over the course of five years, First Cousin Once Removed is Alan Berliner’s intimate portrait of his cousin, friend and former mentor—the poet, translator, and teacher, Edwin Honig—and his journey through the ravages of memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease. It is an unflinching and beautiful essay on the fragility of being human, hailed by The New York Times as Berliner’s “strongest work.” Courtesy of HBO Documentary Films.
