The story of the discovery of the AIDS virus, from the early days in 1978, when San Francisco gays began dying from unknown causes, to the identification of the HIV virus.

The film, quite rightly, deals with these issues. find out more...

Set in Reaganite America, the central plot follows two gay men, both living in the closet, dealing with the burgeoning presence of AIDS in their day-to-day existence. The prevalin find out more...

This is the story of how these men's time shuddered to a halt when riot police entered the compound in October 1992 and shot dead 111 unarmed prisoners. From the direc find out more...
