In this contemplative short, sibling filmmakers Ira and Lynn Sachs provide a visual eulogy for Manhattan artists who died of AIDS. The camera visits the final residences of 18 different New Yorkers, including Cookie Mueller, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Vito Russo—watching for a few moments while displaying the name and address of the deceased—and then moves on. The film is an appropriately brief, to-the-point memorial.
Screens with The Other City at 11:15 a.m. at AFI Silver Theater 3; also on Sunday, June 27, at 6:45 p.m. at AFI Silver Theater 2.
