Long Term Survivors Atlas2018
The San Francisco HIV Frontline Organizing Groups (SF HIV OG) exhibit two productions by Atlas2018.
“Men of the first hour”: We meet Ken, Gregg, Hank, Matt and Vincent over lunch in San Francisco — men who are completely open in witnessing how it was: the losses, the sadness, thinking it over and living through it.
“Patty”: The story of her life is filled with the courage to continue hoping against all expectations — “My hope comes and goes”. And how now as a yoga teacher she seeks and finds balance.
In the blink of an eye these men and women welcome you into their lives. Trailers of our Atlas films, also available on this side.
