First Cousin Once RemovedDVD - 2014
A distinguished poet, translator, critic and teacher, Edwin Honig wrote dozens of books and poems that attracted critical praise around the world. His seminal translations awakened English-speaking readers to previously overlooked literary giants, resulting in honorary knighthoods from the king of Spain and the president of Portugal. In FIRST COUSIN ONCE REMOVED, acclaimed documentary filmmaker Alan Berliner paints a deeply personal portrait of his "good friend, cousin and mentor" as Honig journeys through the ravages of Alzheimer's disease and memory loss. A stark reminder of the profound role memory plays in everyone's life, this is a moving essay on the fragility of being human.
