WE WERE HERE (trailer) from David Weissman on Vimeo.
Join the Minnesota AIDS Project for a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary film “We Were Here” on Thursday, December 1, World AIDS Day, at the Riverview Theater at 7:00 p.m
“It’s impossible for a single film to capture the devastation wrought by AIDS, or the heroism with which many in the LGBT community responded to it. But director David Weissman’s documentary is such a powerful achievement because he just about does it. Focusing on the arrival, detonation and devastation of AIDS in San Francisco (after first reminding viewers how and why the city was a queer utopia), Weissman employs standard documentary tools — stock footage, home movies, smart talking heads — to wonderful effect. It’s that last component that makes the film: Armed with just their voices, wit, humor and memories, the film’s interviewees break your heart with their stories.” Ernest Hardy, LA Weekly
