Description

The historical relationship between AIDS activist artist David Wojnarowicz and Sarah Rosenberg, a fictional teenage lesbian from New York's Upper West Side are imagined in this experimental documentary. The year is 1994 and as Sarah fights to save the television show My So-Called Life from cancellation, David has died amid the fury of culture wars and an aggressive AIDS activist movement. These overlapping biographies consider generational politics and the relevance of activism in contemporary America.
