Silverlake Life: The View from Here

Tom JoslinPeter Friedman
One of the most acclaimed films of the 1990s, SILVERLAKE LIFE is a highly personal film that traces the life and death of filmmaker Tom Joslin and his lover of 22 years, Mark Massi. Largely videotaped by Joslin and Massi themselves and completed by their friend, director Peter Friedman, the film captures the everyday realities of living with AIDS, and emerges as a heightened mix of optimism and despair as two remarkable people share moments of simple joy and profound sorrow. Although shattering at times this is a healing film, as much a paean to love as it is a chronicle of dying.
