  • In the eighties and nineties, as AIDS ravaged the United States gay community, the AIDS Memorial Quilt was born out of a public battle for treatment & understanding. The Last One is a feature-length documentary tracing its history as an international art project and the role it continues to play as a response to a disease that still imperils vulnerable communities around the world.  Through the intensely personal stories of its founders, volunteers, & panelmakers, The Last One examines how stigma and discrimination exacerbated & still fuel a disease that has already claimed the lives of 30 million people & currently infects 34 million men, women & children around the globe–including 50,000 new infections a year in the US alone.
