Common Threads: Stories From the Quilt DVD

Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, narrated by Dustion Hoffman and featuring an original score composed and performaed by Bobby McFerrin, Common Threads uses intimate details to tell an epic story of love, loss, anger and healing.

In the late 1970.s, a mysterious new disease began infecting and killing gay men. Common Threads recounts the lives and deaths of various victims of AIDS who are commemorated in the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt. The quilt is a massive cloth collecting each piece as a memorial for each victim of the disease to both show the death toll and to show the humanity of the victims to those who would rather demonize them.

The winner of the 1989 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, the film takes cold statistics and gives them recognisable faces to create a deeply powerful work that for all its poignancy never sacrifices intelligence to emotion.
