We Were Here
(USA, 2010, 90 mins)
Director David Weissman (THE COCKETTES) returns to Outfest with this moving chronicle of the earliest years of the AIDS epidemic in San Francisco. The film breaks new ground by shedding light on the people behind the statistics, telling the moving, personal stories of five individuals who experienced the impact AIDS had on the city and witnessed the LGBT community coming together in response. Elegiac but inspirational, WE WERE HERE, which premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, bears witness to the experiences of those who died - and, equally importantly, those who lived.
