Wallace Berman only made one film in his lifetime, ALEPH.
        While preserving this film, another assortment of reels was
        uncovered containing many more films with footage by and of
        Berman. These various 8mm pieces have now been collected
        together and blown-up to 16mm. This new compilation features
        unseen scenes of Berman in his milieu with friends and family,
        including footage of a George Herms exhibition, a motorcycle
        ride (perhaps shot by Dean Stockwell) and 25 more minutes of
        footage related to ALEPH.
