ABOUT THE FILM
“Here we are, 25 years later, still alive and not knowing why”. Last Men Standing tells the stories of eight men from the San Francisco area who are long-term survivors of the AIDS crisis. From learning of their own diagnosis to losing friends, lovers and neighbours in the Castro area of the city, the men talk intimately about living with what they thought would be a certain death sentence. When the discovery of drugs to treat HIV and prevent AIDS altered the course of the epidemic, survival brought new challenges and new struggles for these largely forgotten last men standing.
