Every ten minutes, someone in the United States contracts HIV, and nearly half of the one million people in the United States infected with HIV are black men, women, and children. Endgame: AIDS in Black America is a groundbreaking two-hour exploration of one of the country's most urgent, preventable health crises. The film traces the history of the epidemic through the experiences of extraordinary individuals who tell their stories.
David Weissman's We Were Here revisits the San Francisco of the 80s and 90s, using the city's experience with AIDS to open up a conversation about both the history of the epidemic and the lessons to be learned from it. Yet the film reaches far beyond San Francisco and beyond AIDS itself as it illuminates the power of a community that comes together with love, compassion, and determination.
