After 82

After 82

What would you do if a deadly virus wiped out your circle of friends literally overnight? This is the situation that faced the gay community in the UK in the early 1980s.

Young gay men who were living their lives were confronted with death and bigotry side by side. This is their stories told by the first generation of HIV survivors.

Five years in the making, Directors and Producers Ben Lord and Steve Keeble bring together on screen personal stories told from the heart of a community that witnessed devastation, on a daily basis as they watched their lovers, friends and family die one by one.

This is their story and what happened after '82.

DocDays screening:  Following a presentation of After 82 we will host a panel to discuss the issues raised, featuring:

  • Danny West - Long time survivor
  • Jonathan Blake – Long time survivor
  • Michelle Ross-Turner – Founder of CliniQ
  • Alex Sparrowhawk – Lives with the virus

Monday 23 April 6.30pm, Curzon Soho.

With thanks to 82 Films.
