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.


Alan Berliner is an independent filmmaker and experimental documentarian, known for his personal cinematic essays, including The Family Album, The Intimate Stranger and Nobody’s Business. A recipient of Rockefeller, Guggenheim and Jerome Foundation Fellowships, Berliner has won three Emmy awards and exhibited his films at festivals around the world.
