Last Men Standing
New York Premiere
Dir: Tim Hussin & Erin Brethauer, US, 2016, 66 mins
This screening on Oct. 24th at The LGBT Community Center will be followed by an extended panel discussion. Eight HIV-positive men share their struggles and triumphs as they navigate the golden years they never thought they’d see, nearly 30 years after being diagnosed. In the mid-1980s, HIV infection was considered a death sentence. But three decades have passed and the featured eight San Francisco gay men are living on, only now they’re celebrating life while navigating challenges they never expected to confront: survivor’s guilt, financial woes, aging in a youth-obsessed culture, and making sense of their lives. An unflinching and moving tribute to honesty, courage, and fate, LAST MEN STANDING documents the diverse and always-riveting experience of ordinary men in extraordinary circumstances.
