With LGBT Pride this month, we’re continuing to spotlight some of the amazing films about LGBT subjects that have played Tribeca throughout the years.
Next up is Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s HBO documentary The Battle of AMFAR. As AIDS waged a plague on the worldwide LGBT community in the 1980s, Elizabeth Taylor and Dr. Mathilde Krim joined forces to launch amfAR: The Foundation for AIDS Research. Their efforts to create the country’s first research foundation devoted exclusively to the disease are captured in this absorbing and evocative chronicle that should be required viewing for all.
Know your history. The battle is not yet over.
