Twitter Capsule: Sort of rudimentary technique but harnesses its simplicity to powerful ends. Admirably complex messaging about HIV/AIDS.

Second Capsule: This was among my most powerful communal viewing experiences in several years of attending @ReelingFilmFest. I'm so grateful they showed it.

VOR:   Most obviously important as the first narrative feature to engage forthrightly with HIV/AIDS. Just as revealing of a now-lost independent film scene.
