This David Weissman documentary tells the story of how San Francisco’s gay community was hit by an unimaginable disaster over 30 years ago. Going back to 1981 it tells, through the vantage points of sufferers, activists, researchers, friends and lovers, how AIDS changed their beloved city into the epicentre of a terrible sexually transmitted “gay plague” as it was thought of then.
This powerful and emotive documentary relates the incredible power of a community joining together with compassion, love and determination to fight an unknown foe and challenge the establishment to obtain equality of care, treatment and research. Powerful stuff, well worth viewing.
