The Sweetest Sound
By Alan Berliner
A co-presentation with the Independent Television Service (ITVS)
Natioinal PBS Premiere Week Tuesday, June 26th at 10pm (check your local listings).
Everyone has a name--names are the opening words to our life stories. With intamacy, humor, and his won inimitable style, Alan Berliner dives headfirst into the American name pool in search of the treasures and traps hidden in names--especially his own. In confronting the "same name syndrome" and his yearning to b unique, The Sweetest sound starts out as a search for identity, and slowly transforms inot a meditation on mortality, leaving a keen sense of the power and mystery embedded in every name.
