The first-ever feature to explore the AIDS pandemic, Buddies endures as a landmark of LGBTQ indie cinema. Gay yuppie, David Schachter, volunteers to be a “buddy” to older, politically impassioned Geoff Edholm and finds himself gradually growing closer to him. A devastating two-hander from adult film veteran Arthur J. Bressan Jr., the action unfolds within the confines of a Manhattan hospital room—additional characters are only heard offscreen.
Long-unavailable, we’re pleased to present the premiere engagement of this 2K restoration courtesy of Vinegar Syndrome.
Exclusive NY engagement. A Frameline release.
