1/19/11: We Were Here

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Sundance Film Festival gets underway tomorrow, and we're beginning our coverage with a look at the documentary film "We Were Here." It's about the devastation of the AIDS epidemic in the early 1980s and the response from the gay community in San Francisco. We'll talk with director David Weissman and others about that reaction and compare it to the way today's young gay community is thinking about AIDS and HIV.
