1985

In 1985, President Ronald Reagan publicly acknowledged AIDS for the first time, after more than 5,000 people in the United States, mostly gay men, had already been killed by the disease. It is during this milestone year that director Yen Tan sets his fifth feature film, assembling an outstanding cast to bring his critically-observed period piece to life. Tan’s unique choice to shoot in black-and-white 16mm film furthers the atmosphere of strained intimacy. Yen Tan joins us for our Opening Gala, and for an intimate repeat screening on Friday, August 10.
