Film Screening: Last Men Standing
January 11 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST
Living Room, Out Front Theatre Company & Out on Film, are partnering for a screening of Last Men Standing.
“Last Men Standing,” is the first feature-length documentary from The San Francisco Chronicle and was selected for entry into a series of prestigious film festivals in the U.S. and Canada. The film follows eight Bay Area men who had the remarkable luck to survive AIDS, and the brutal misfortune to live on.
Rich and distinguished stories unfold among the lives of long-term survivors who have learned how to celebrate, heal, love, and thrive after the devastation of the early AIDS crisis. In this cathartic and intimate documentary, eight men look back on their experiences and then toward the future with the strength and resiliency they have cultivated over the past 30 years.
Survivors are still affected by the trauma of not only their diagnosis but also the loss of community and way of life. Nobody knew they would grow old with AIDS. Many abandoned careers and went on long-term disability to wait out their death sentence, and now they face an uncertain economic future. As they age, and as the Castro neighborhood changes, long-term survivors are also creating new ways to connect, and to find meaning and community. This meditative documentary, the first full-length film produced by the San Francisco Chronicle, draws attention to the emotional and inspiring history of the city’s gay community in the post-AIDS era.
Admission is free and concessions will be sold on sight.
