At once an elegy for the death of the printed newspaper in the digital age and an exploration of its place amidst the urgency of this current political moment—Letter to the Editor contains the layered and nuanced personal musings of a news junkie and the culmination of his decades-long love affair with the printed newspaper.
In 1980, when he was 23-years-old, filmmaker Alan Berliner began collecting photographs from the printed edition of the New York Times, amassing thousands of images in a vast personal archive. Forty years later, Berliner has created a baby boomer’s lament on the end of an era, on coping with change, on time passing, on growing old, and on staying informed and engaged during these challenging and uncertain times.
