Description

In the mid-80s a diagnosis of HIV infection was tantamount to a death sentence. Thirty years later, the men profiled in this moving and thought-provoking documentary from San Francisco Chronicle journalists/filmmakers Erin Bethauer and Tim Hussin are still alive. Having beaten the odds, they find themselves faced with the challenges they thought they’d never live to confront: aging, survivor’s guilt, financial difficulties, and rampant ageism in the surrounding youth-obsessed culture. How exactly do these gay men fit into a world that never expected to have a place for them? Brethauer and Hussin’s film documents the lives of ordinary men who inexplicably have survived to find themselves in extraordinary circumstances.
