Plot & Details

This unusual documentary profiles angry young filmmaker, political activist and AIDS patient Gregg Bordowitz. The ways in which the disease has affected his art are also explored. To tell his story a variety of elements from his life are woven together including his personal musings, the daily realities of AIDS, his Jewishness, family life, and the effects of political activism on his life. Also explored are the positive effects that AIDS has had on Bordowitz's life. He was diagnosed in 1988 when he was only 23. This lead him to come out about his homosexuality, quit taking drugs and drinking, and it gave him a sense of belonging.
