COMMON THREADS: STORIES FROM THE QUILT

An Olympic athlete; a gay activist; a boy with hemophilia; a recovering heroin addict; a closeted Navy commander: five very diverse lives that shared a common fate. Their lives - along with thousands of others - are woven together in a giant memorial patchwork quilt that is solemnly unfolded in the U.S. capitol to protest the government's refusal to respond to a growing epidemic. Common Threads tells the powerful story of the first decade of the AIDS epidemic in the U.S.

"Slams through stereotypes...Slowly, carefully, powerfully, "Common Threads" takes the cold statistics and gives them very recognizable faces. Very few viewers are likely to be unmoved." -The New York Times
