Join Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman for a free talk on Oct. 24 at 6pm ET. Register here.
For more than 30 years, Oscar-winning directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman have borne powerful witness to gay life, creativity, and activism — documenting lost aspects of LGBTQ+ history and chronicling unfolding events with humor, compassion, and fierce urgency. In their films, extraordinary interviews make the political personal and unforgettable. With Paragraph 175 and The Celluloid Closet, Epstein and Friedman examined the persecution of gay men in Nazi Germany and Hollywood’s history of hidden homophobia. Their documentaries The AIDS Show, Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt, The Times of Harvey Milk, and Where Are We? have both chronicled and helped change history. As we look at their essential partnership and the endlessly empathetic, consciousness-building films it has yielded, we invite you to see more and save with this four-film program bundle, featuring a selection vital works released by Milestone Films: The AIDS Show, Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt, Paragraph 175, and Where Are We?
