United States | 2011 | David Weissman & Bill Weber
This deeply moving documentary—the best-reviewed film of 2011 after A Separation, according to metacritic.com—chronicles how, two decades ago, the AIDS epidemic devastated and transformed San Francisco’s gay community, killing over 15,000. Eloquent eyewitness testimony and choice archival materials paint an indelible portrait of a community in crisis—and what they did about it.
