Film: Silverlake Life: The View From Here *****

Silverlake Life: The View From Here 

U.S.A. [1993] Documentary.

I watched this documentary years ago while studying in the US for my HIV/AIDS class. At the time they only had the DVD available for watching in the library at the university. I found myself crying my eyes out while sitting and watching this film in the library. It was both beautiful and horrific at the same time. I recommend watching it when in a stable emotional state.
