THE AIDS SHOW

Filmed in 1986 in the very early years of the crisis, The AIDS (Artists Involved with Death and Survival) Show deals with the impact of the epidemic on the community most affected by the disease - gay men. This unique work, one of the first films to deal with the subject of AIDS, is based on San Francisco's long-running Theatre Rhinoceros stage production of the same name. It speaks to everyone who has ever thought about AIDS or any terminal disease. Excerpts from the play have been combined with interviews with the show's creators and performers, along with a personal narration by the filmmakers — Peter Adair & Rob Epstein —  to produce a powerful hybrid of documentary and drama.

"A complex production, often deeply moving, sometimes very funny, that gets away from the sanitizing "objectivity" of a news report or panel discussion." -New York Times
