PBS Premiere: June 15, 1993
Winner of over 10 international awards including the Prix Italia and the Sundance Grand Jury Prize, Silverlake Life: The View From Here is an extraordinary video diary about living with AIDS. This landmark film documents, with guts and humor, the love and dedication of longtime companions Tom Joslin and Mark Massi. From the emotional challenge of living with a fatal illness to the frustration of maintaining daily routines, this is a powerful tale of love, commitment, mortality and the strength of the human spirit.
A testament to an extraordinary relationship, a love story in extremis.”

Extraordinarily moving... no one who sees it through to its unexpectedly buoyant final scene will regret the time spent or be unchanged by the experience.”
