When AIDS strikes, two very different women—Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor and research scientist Dr. Mathilde Krim—join forces to create America’s first AIDS research foundation. The fight against HIV/AIDS has never been the same.
About the Directors
Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s partnership making nonfiction and feature films began in 1987, when they opened an office in a former convent in San Francisco and founded Telling Pictures. They went on to produce and direct Common Threads, Where Are We?, Paragraph 175, and HOWL. Almost all of these films, along with Epstein’s first feature, The Times of Harvey Milk, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
