Alan Berliner's Letter to the Editor

📍: BDC, 614 Courtlandt Ave, Bronx, NY 10451

Composed entirely of photographs cut out from print editions of The New York Times over a 40-year period, Alan Berliner’s Letter to the Editor is the layered and nuanced musings of a news junkie, and the culmination of the filmmaker’s decades-long love affair with the printed newspaper. With both solemn seriousness and visual whimsy, the film explores the declining role (and impending disappearance) of the newspaper in the face of transformative advances in media and digital technology.

To attend this event a donation of $5 to $10 dollars is suggested.
