‘An indelible, must-see ode to gay New York’ – The New York Times

Melbourne Premiere

Uncle Howard is an engrossing intertwining tale of past and present – the story of filmmaker Howard Brookner whose work captured the late 1970s and early '80s cultural revolution in New York and his nephew's personal journey 25 years later to discover his uncle's films and the legacy of a life cut short by the plague of AIDS. Featuring rare glimpses into his life and career, including outtakes from his 1983 debut film Burroughs: The Movie and long-lost footage and archival photos of Patti Smith, Andy Warhol, John Waters, Madonna, and interviews from iconic filmmakers such as Jim Jarmusch, Uncle Howard is a fascinating cultural artifact.
