Synopsis

When 25 year-old gay yuppie David volunteers to be a “buddy” to an AIDS patient, the gay community center assigns him to Robert, a 32 year-old politically impassioned gay gardener abandoned by his friends and lovers. Throughout his visits to Robert’s hospital room, the two men become friends.

Our take

Presented in a new 2K restoration, this overwhelming masterpiece from pioneering gay filmmaker Arthur J. Bressan Jr. was the first feature about the AIDS crisis. Set within a Manhattan hospital, two men movingly discuss life, death, and politics in an act of cinematic love and resistance.
