13TH GEN
  • 13th GEN

In obvservance of the 35th anniversary of the first reported cases of AIDS, the San Antonio AIDS Foundation hosts a community screening of Desert Migration, a 2015 documentary that sheds light on living and aging with HIV/AIDS through the everyday experiences of long-term survivors who “migrated” to the accepting desert oasis of Palm Springs, California. The first feature-length film from Australian director Daniel F. Cardone (himself a 21-year survivor), the 2015 release pieces together one day in the occasionally intersecting lives of 13 gay men as they “work, eat, sleep, love, recuperate and grieve.” Benefiting SAAF, the event kicks off with a reception (cash bar) and culminates with a Q&A and panel discussion between the filmmaker, Dr. Barbara Saatkamp Taylor, local long-term survivors and SAAF CEO Cynthia Nelson. $30, 6:30-9pm Thu, Santikos Bijou, Fredericksburg Road, (210) 734-4552, sanantonioaids.org. — Bryan Rindfuss
