QFest Special Presentation: Screening of We Were Here
We Were Here documents the coming of what was called the “Gay Plague” in the early 1980s. The film focuses on five individuals – all of whom lived in San Francisco prior to the epidemic. Their lives changed in unimaginable ways when their beloved city changed from a hotbed of sexual freedom and social experimentation into the epicenter of a terrible sexually transmitted plague. As a filmmaker and political activist who arrived in San Francisco in 1976 and was deeply affected by the epidemic, director David Weissman brings a unique personal understanding to this history.
