Lunch Positive to screen HIV documentary tonight as part of World Aids Day events

Besi Besemar November 30, 2016

Lunch Positive will host a community screening of the moving HIV documentary We were here, on Wednesday, November 30.

web-600The film is a true story from those in San Francisco who lived through the early days of the AIDS epidemic and for some this will be a reminder and for others an insight.

This community event is part of the 2016 World AIDS Day commemorations and is being planned and put together by the Lunch Positive volunteer team as part of their contributions to World AIDS Day.

Everyone is welcome and the event is free of charge.  Doors will open at 6.45pm with a buffet served before the film starts.  Donations to cover food and venue hire are welcome.

The screening will be at Dorset Gardens Methodist Church, Dorset Gardens, Brighton. Seating is limited and everyone is encouraged to arrive in good time to secure a place.

Permission for this screening has been kindly granted to Lunch Positive by Director David Weissmam and Peccadillo Pictures.

“An edifying must-see that has received accolades at film festivals the world over, We were here is the first film to take a deep and reflective look back at the arrival and impact of a definitive chapter in San Francisco’s queer history. It explores how the City’s inhabitants were affected by, and how they responded to, a calamitous epidemic, opening a window of understanding to those who have only the vaguest notion of what transpired in those years. In the face of adversity they stood strong and united. This is their story.”
