The San Francisco Chronicle Debuts Special Report on the Forgotten Survivors of AIDS with Documentary Film "Last Men Standing"
Landmark Project Highlights the Lives and Experiences of Eight Local AIDS Survivors
SAN FRANCISCO, March 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the few newspapers to write, direct and produce a feature-length documentary, the San Francisco Chronicle, Northern California's largest newspaper, will debut its first film, "Last Men Standing," on Friday, April 8 at the Castro Theatre. The documentary, which follows the lives and experiences of eight long-term AIDS survivors, is part of a larger special report featuring interactive digital and print features by Chronicle reporter Erin Allday.
"Our mission is to tell the story of our city, and no other public health crisis struck a U.S. city as deeply as AIDS hit San Francisco. Tens of thousands of San Franciscans were promised a sudden death – and thousands succumbed to the AIDS plague. But many of them survived, only to live a life where death was a constant companion.
Doing this story as a 20-page print section, an interactive digital project and a documentary is a key way that we are expanding our role as Northern California's largest news source. Telling a story in multiple ways helps us reach as many people as possible," said Chronicle Editor in Chief Audrey Cooper.
