Autobiographical film by the veteran independent, experimental filmmaker, Steve Dwoskin. Constructed in rich, associative fashion, it features excerpts from Dwoskin’s early work, home movies shot by his father in Brooklyn, and references to the beat culture of the 1950s and 60s. The filmmaker’s contraction of polio and its effect on his life and work are also considered.
