Filmmaker / film historian Jenni Olson will be on hand to present the new 2K digital restoration of the groundbreaking Buddies, Arthur Bressan’s landmark independent film, the first feature-length drama about AIDS. The artfully economical film maps the relationship between two gay men, patient and caregiver: David, the 25 year-old “yuppie” donating volunteer time, and Robert, a 32 year-old politically impassioned gardener abandoned by his friends and lovers.
