People who have saved this event:



Please join us for a screening of We Were Here, a documentary chronicling the arrival of AIDS in San Francisco. An edifying must-see that has received accolades at film festivals the world over, ‘We Were Here' is the first film to take a deep and reflective look back at the arrival and impact of a definitive chapter in a city's queer history. It explores how the inhabitants were affected by, and how they responded to, a calamitous epidemic. Though a San Francisco-based story, We Were Here extends beyond San Francisco and beyond AIDS itself. It speaks to our capacity as individuals to rise to the occasion, and to the incredible power of a community coming together with love, compassion, and determination.
