United States | 2011 | David Weissman & Bill Weber

We Were Here

This deeply moving documentary—the best-reviewed film of 2011 after A Separation, according to—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.

Between 9/28 and 10/21, the Ensemble Theatre in Cleveland Heights will present Larry Kramer’s play The Normal Heart, about the early days of the AIDS crisis in NYC. Visit for more information or to buy tickets. Enter “CIA” in “coupons” and receive $2 off the ticket price. Then present your ticket stub from The Normal Heart and receive $2 off your $9 or $7 admission to We Were Here.
