This was a mighty powerful film in its day.

It still delivers...food for thought!

This was the first film to specifically address the difficulties in relationships between HIV-positive and HIV-negative men. Two go-go dancers assess each other’s mortality while the world rotates and a gay man reflects on the psychosocial consequences of the disclosure of his HIV infection. Video images caught in a loop of restless perseverance. A feverish attempt to make a film to battle the shock that the AIDS crisis presented to a vibrant sexuality. Resolutely, the directors expose the corrosion of desire as a result of the fear of rejection.

Along with the documentary Self-Portrait in 23 Rounds: a Chapter in David Wojnarowicz's Life, 1989–1991 by Marion Scemama, the film complements the exhibition “David Wojnarowicz: Photography & Film 1978-1992” that begins during the Berlinale at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin.
