Description

When Howard Brookner died of AIDS in 1989, the 35-year-old director had completed two feature documentaries and was in post-production on his narrative debut, Bloodhounds of Broadway. Twenty-five years later, his nephew, Aaron, sets out on a quest to find the lost negative of his uncle’s critically-acclaimed portrait of William S. Burroughs. In so doing, he not only revives the film for a new generation, but also opens a vibrant window on New York City’s creative culture from the 1970s and ’80s. Produced by Sara Driver; Executive Produced by Jim Jarmusch
