Film Information

Join us for a community collaboration with Nebraska AIDS Project with the screening of what has been described by some critics as a "gay Thelma & Louise," followed by an important discussion!

The Living End, directed by Gregg Araki, follows two men living with HIV as they outrun the law. This deeply human comedy-drama shows the complexity of dealing with a crisis at a time when little to no hope was on the horizon. Visit with NAP Staff before the film and after, join them for a dialogue about the past, present, and future of living with HIV and learn about Nebraska AIDS Project services.
