POV: Silverlake Life: The View From Here (PBS)
Winner 1993 | P.O.V./Silverlake Productions
When filmmaker Peter Friedman’s friends Tom Joslin and Mark Massi died, he received an extraordinary inheritance: forty hours of videotape documenting the couple’s struggle with AIDS. For the next fifteen months, Friedman labored over the tape and emerged with a candid and heart-wrenching documentary on love, commitment, and mortality in the age of AIDS. Silverlake Life: The View from Here follows Joslin and Massi through daily struggles as they face AIDS. While the program unflinchingly chronicles their deaths, this video diary also inspires compassion and hope. For an uncommonly moving journal of life, love, and death, a Peabody to P.O.V. and Silverlake Productions for Silverlake Life: The View from Here.
