Common threads stories from the quilt ( visu )
5 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 418 libraries worldwide
"In the early 1980s, a mysterious disease suddenly started killing young gay men in American cities. It wasn't unitl Rock Hudson's death in 1985 that the rest of the country began to take notice. "Common threads" tells the powerful story of the first decade of the AIDS epidemic in the US - the first ominous warning signs and the government's failure to respond, to the vibrant protest movement that was born as a result. Starting with five life-stories chosen from the thousands memorialized in the NAMES Project AIDS Quilt - the Olympic athlete ; the recovering drug addict ; the conservative naval commander ; the gay street activist ; and the 11 year old suburban boy with haemophilia - the filmmakers skilfully weave intimate memories with contemporary news footage to tell a moving story of love, loss, anger and healing."--Container
