We were here je prvi dokumentarac koji pruža dubok i reflektujući osvrt na dolazak i uticaj AIDS u San Francisku. Film istražuje kako su stanovnici bili pogođeni i kako su odgovorili na tu poraznu epidemiju. Iako je priča bazirana u San Francisku, We were here prevazilazi ovaj grad i sami AIDS. On priča o našim kapacitetima kao individuama da se ponašamo u skladu sa situacijom i velikoj snazi zajednice koju spaja ljubav, saosećanje i odlučnost.

We Were Here is the first documentary to take a deep and reflective look back at the arrival and impact of AIDS in San Francisco. It explores how the City’s inhabitants were affected by, and how they responded to, that calamitous epidemic. Though a San Francisco-based story, We Were Here extends beyond San Francisco and beyond AIDS itself. It speaks to our capacity as individuals to rise to the occasion, and to the incredible power of a community coming together with love, compassion, and determination.
