The Gift of Time: Alan Berliner and his Process – Part I

The Gift of Time: Alan Berliner and his Process – Part I

“I have hundreds of file cabinet drawers filled with all sorts of things” – Alan Berliner

Three-time NYFA Fellow Alan Berliner (Film ’85, ‘91, ‘99) is a filmmaker and media artist. Following his recent film, First Cousin Once Removed (2012), Berliner is currently working on a new project about photojournalism. After devotedly cutting out articles and photographs from The New York Times for the past 35 years – accumulating a vast archive of information and imagery – it’s time for him to finally figure out why…

NYFA fiscally sponsored artist Benita Raphan (click link to read her interview with NYFA) has conducted a series of interviews with Alan to explore his creative process in the podcast series The Gift of Time: Alan Berliner and his Process

Alan Berliner’s films Intimate Stranger (1991) and Nobody’s Business (1996) will be screened at the New York Jewish Film Festival at Lincoln Center on January 24 at 3 PM. Emerging and active filmmakers and film enthusiasts alike will find his Master Class of interest too on January 24 at 6 PM.
