Description

5B (2018)

Directed by Paul Haggis and Dan Krauss, 94 minutes

UK premiere

5B is the inspirational story of everyday heroes, nurses and caregivers who took extraordinary action to comfort, protect and care for the patients of the first AIDS ward unit in the United States.

5B is stirringly told through first-person testimony of these nurses and caregivers who built Ward 5B in 1983 at San Francisco General Hospital, their patients, loved ones, and staff who volunteered to create care practices based in humanity and holistic well-being during a time of great uncertainty.

The result is an uplifting yet candid and bittersweet monument to a pivotal moment in American history and a celebration of quiet heroes, nurses and caregivers worthy of renewed recognition.

Screening as part of this year's Global Health Film Festival programme; preceded by three short films including the World Premiere of UTAMA: testing for HIV is real love, the UK premiere of The Drip and Life Growing Up. Followed by panel discussion with film directors, film protagonists and health experts.
