Portraits: Human Journeys

Uncle Howard / Aaron Brookner

​New York filmmaker Howard Brookner died of AIDS in 1989, while making his breakthrough Hollywood movie. His body of work, which captured the late 70s and early 80s cultural revolution, was buried in William S. Burroughs’ “bunker” for 30 years. Howard Brookner was gay; broke artist; rising Hollywood star; heroin user; jet-setter; bohemian; seedy nightlife lover; director of cult docs; an honest and devoted friend – he was many things to many people. Now in a personal journey, his nephew Aaron Brookner unearths Howard's filmmaking legacy and the memory of everything he was. Through conversations with family and close friends – including Jim Jarmusch, Tom DiCillo, Robert Wilson – comes an exploration into a sordid and bankrupt New York City, the eruption of the AIDS plague, sex, drugs, politics, and the artistic determination of a filmmaker whose life was cut short.
