"We Were Here"...rivetting documentary on San Francisco's A.I.D.S. crisis screens at Castro Theatre!
A few months ago, I raved about an insightful thought-provoking documentary - "We Were Here" - which tosses a searing spotlight on San Francisco's Castro District at the height of the A.I.D.S. epidemic way back in the 1980's.
The well-crafted doc is a must-see tribute (among other things) to the selfless individuals who bravely attempted to bring comfort to (and healing) to the dying - and ultimately - and raise much-needed funds in order to find a cure for the dreaded killer disease.
If you missed the powerful offering from Director David Weissman first-time-out, catch it the second time around at the Castro Theatre where it is screening now for the next couple of nights.
See 'ya there!
