I Still Remember recounts the years the two main characters spent together. It is a powerful and moving story of the quest for love, devastation, and, ultimately, remembrance. I Still Remember is a fictionalized compilation of the lifestyle of many gay men of the time period.Everyone was free; no one worried about sexually transmitted diseases. From sex clubs to Fire Island with the notorious Meat Rack to the Meatpacking District of New York, Andres sought an immediate connection, a search for permanence, and a commitment of love. Yet, his world was shattered by the onslaught of HIV/AIDS. Nothing would ever be the same. He had to face fear, parental rejection because of religion, and his declining health. Throughout it all, Scott was by his side. When Andres passed, Scott and his friends gathered in Fire Island – to celebrate his life.
Scott recounts their story with friends and the spirit of Andres in flashback reminisces. He is their voice for today as the film remembers those who perished from the disease and honors the long term survivors.
Continue the day at 3:30 pm with an Artist Talk with Vladimir Rios and Lester Blum speaking about the creation and social importance/relevance of I Still Remember. The program, live on Facebook and YouTube will be presented by the New Haven Pride Center in partnership with the New Haven Mayor’s Task Force on AIDS and the Guardian Health Association.

We’ll see you on World AIDS Day – December 1, 2020.
