I AM SECRETLY AN IMPORTANT MAN

I AM SECRETLY AN IMPORTANT MAN

Director: Peter Sillen

This portrait of Steven J. Bernstein (aka Jesse Bernstein) illuminates the life, work and impact of one of Seattle’s most celebrated voices. Known for his angry, surprisingly fresh, lyrical writings about people alienated by a society that refuses to understand them, his unique rhythms, filled with humor and pain, were especially exciting when read in his own gravely voice. Unfortunately much of Jesse’s work has not yet found the audience it deserves outside the Pacific Northwest.
