The Sweetest Sound
Will the real Alan Berliner please stand up? Is there, in fact, a real Alan Berliner? For the film director, the sound of his name is the sweetest sound. But it is not solely his, it belongs to others too. This realisation sends him on a journey to the centre of his identity, via a multitude of Alan Berliners. A humorous exploration of the meaning of names and the connections they provide ensues, as the filmmaker unpicks his own name and holds Alan Berliner Day in order to meet his fellow title holders. Does a name tell us who we are? And is President Kennedy really a doughnut?
