NewFest Opening Night: We Were Here
WE WERE HERE (trailer) from David Weissman on Vimeo.
1970s. San Francisco. A promised land for those who had enough of the closet and were looking for a real community that would support them, not disown them. David Weissman's incredibly moving portrait of a moment in time, "We Were Here," follows the story of five members of that loving and affectionate community as they recount their days enduring one of their lives' biggest challenges -- the AIDS crisis. With stories of love, loss, and brother- and sister-hood, "We Were Here" showcases one city's citizens coming together to fight for the lives and humanity of everyone they can.
Screening at NewFest on July 21 at 7:00 PM.
An Encore Screening has been added Tuesday, July 26 at 3 PM at the Cinema Village.
