Show of the week: First Cousin Once Removed

The poet Edwin Honig was already beginning to suffer from Alzheimer’s when filmmaker Alan Berliner began five years of interviews.

Memory is the raw material of poets. So what happens when a poet loses the ability to remember clearly? Edwin Honig, a revered man of letters, was already beginning to suffer the effects of Alzheimer’s when filmmaker Alan Berliner, a distant relative, began five years of interviews. Berliner has blended found footage with passages from Honig’s writings to create a visual poem about the way that any of us compose a sense of self from assorted memories, both the good and the bad. This unforgettable film makes life appear suddenly more fleeting. Monday, Sept. 23, at 9 p.m., HBO
