Summary
An Olympic athlete; a gay activist; a boy with hemophilia; a recovering heroin addict; a closeted Navy commander: five very diverse lives that shared a common fate. Their lives""along with thousands of others""are woven together in a giant memorial patchwork quilt, that is solemnly unfolded in the US capitol to protest the government's refusal to respond to a growing epidemic. Common Threads tells the powerful story of the first decade of the AIDS epidemic in the US. Narrated by Dustin Hoffman Awards Academy Award, Best Feature Documentary (1989) George Foster Peabody Award - University of Georgia School of Journalism Emmy Award - Best Original Score - Bobby McFerrin "Slams through stereotypes "¦ Slowly, carefully, powerfully, Common Threads takes the cold statistics and gives them very recognizable faces." - The New York Times. "A great documentary." - The Washington Post. "As powerful and moving a documentary as you will ever see. A+." - People. "A documentary with the cumulative emotional impact of great tragedy." - Los Angeles Times. "Simply stunning"¦a study in devotion and anger and courage at a dark time. And through it all, it's love that shines the brightest." -Variety
