“David Weissman’s WE WERE HERE is a moving, elegant film that focuses on loss in San Francisco during the AIDS crisis. Weissman’s unhurried pacing allows us to experience, sit with loss as we listen to the range of voices who witnessed and remember the devastating loss of life from AIDS.”   Ron Gregg, Film Studies and LGBT Studies, Yale University

“This exceptional, eye-opening film and the moving and deeply personal stories shared by the panelists changed the way our students and faculty think about HIV/AIDS and about what it means to build and to be a community.   WE WERE HERE should be required viewing on every campus!” J. David Macey, Jr., Ph.D. Professor & Chairperson, Department of English, University of Central Oklahoma

“A beautiful and moving film. Such wonderful profiles, such deep feeling, so much dignity and respect in the storytelling… WE WERE HERE is a must for courses and events across a variety of disciplines.” Josh Gamson, Professor of Sociology, University of San Francisco
