Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt
This film, narrated by Dustin Hoffman, won an Academy Award for Best Documentary in 1989. Common Threads: Stories From the Quilt helps put faces on the names on the quilt of those who have died from AIDS. The quilt at that time covered 14 acres. The lives of five people who suffered and fought this disease are celebrated. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"That each of the thousands of panels represents a life as unique as the five witnessed on screen is heartbreaking. This Oscar-winning docu paved the way for other features about AIDS."
