Everyone expected to die. But they didn’t. Today about 80,000 people in Canada are living with HIV. On World AIDS Day, Reel Causes is honoured to partner with the Positive Living Society of BC to present the Vancouver Premiere of the poignant new documentary Last Men Standing, about long- term survivors of HIV and AIDS. Produced by San Francisco Chronicle, and directed by two of its visual journalists, Erin Brethauer and Tim Hussin, the film takes us on a intimate journey into the lives of eight men who, despite their early HIV diagnoses, have survived against the odds, finding unexpected life and love. The post-film discussion ‘Remembering The Survivors,’ will include Positive Living, participants in the film and local long term HIV survivors.
