Award-winning documentary, narrated by Dustin Hoffman, that tells the stories of five of the 47,000 people whose lives are commemorated in the AIDS quilt. Constructed in 1989, the quilt, made as a memorial to and celebration of the lives of people who have died of AIDS-related causes, has become the largest piece of community art work in the world, covering 14 acres, and weighing over 50 tons.
You will be guided by an Art Historian with a PHD on art related to AIDS. This time she decided to explore the subject a bit wider, including many different epidemics that have stricken our world in the past.
For a stretch of time in the 1980s and 90s, the word buddy meant, in modern gay life, someone who had agreed to be a friend to a man dying of AIDS. A buddy visited. Listened to stories. Told stories. Laughed. Cried. And above all, tried to make sure that the frail man in the bed knew that he had not been forgotten. That his passing would be noted. And mourned. David (David Schachter), a naive graduate student, has volunteered to work as a 'buddy' for people dying of AIDS. Assigned to the intensely political Robert (Geoff Edholm), a lifelong activist whose friends and family have abandoned him following his diagnosis, the two men, each with notably different world views, soon discover common bonds, as David's inner activist awakens and Robert's need for emotional release is fulfilled. In the 1985 film Buddies, writer-director Arthur J. Bressan Jr. did a simple yet radical thing: He told the story of one such friendship and, in the process, made the first feature-length drama about AIDS. Shot on 16mm film in nine days, Buddies earned respectful reviews and a few festival prizes, but has faded from view over the years. Bressan died of AIDS in July 1987; now, thanks to the efforts of his sister Roe Bressan and film historian Jenni Olson, Buddies has received a 2K digital restoration from Vinegar Syndrome. Thirty-three years after its initial release, the film remains as affecting as ever. - Village Voice - Newly scanned and restored from 16mm camera negative- - Original theatrical trailer - Archival still/news/ production article gallery - English SDH subtitles

We provide an introduction to the art world that emphasizes how to look at and what to look for when viewing any work of art. By utilizing visual and tactile aids, we involve the child in the techniques, process and artists’ motivations. At the same time, we ensure the adult chaperones (over 18) are entertained as well. After the tour, you'll be amazed by the shared discoveries you have experienced together. In addition, each child is presented with an “Art Appreciation Badge” and gift. Tours in other languages are available for an additional charge.
