The Gift of Time: Alan Berliner and His Process – Part III

Part III: Architect’s Handwriting

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 has conducted a series of interviews with Alan to explore his creative process in the 5-part podcast series The Gift of Time: Alan Berliner and his Process.

Listen to the third installment here:

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. 

The next podcast will be published here on NYFA Current on January 19, 2016.
