“The film 1985 speaks to the pain of withheld truth, separating one loved one from another because of bigotry, ignorance and fear of rejection.  As we reflect on the world as it is over 30 years after 1985 takes place, we must pay tribute to those who took the battle cry seriously:  Silence = Death. Action = Life.  We owe a great debt to everyone who came out – intentionally and because of their deaths from AIDS – for creating a world that is so much more evolved today.”

1985 had its Los Angeles premiere at Outfest 2018, and Nicholas Snow is honored to have broadcast live – not only the red carpet but the post-screening Q&A – on the all-new Notes From Hollywood on PromoHomo.TV.  In the red carpet interviews (above), Snow gets up close and personal with Corey Michael Smith and Virginia Madsen.  Below, in the post-screening Q&A, writer/director/co-editor Yen Tan joins them.

The official synopsis explains, “Inspired by the award-winning short of the same name, 1985 follows Adrian (Corey Michael Smith) a closeted young man returning to his Texas hometown for Christmas during the first wave of the AIDS crisis.  Burdened with unspeakable tragedy in New York, Adrian reconnects with his brother (Aidan Langford) and estranged childhood friend (Jamie Chung), as he struggles to divulge his dire circumstances to his religious parents (Virginia Madsen and Michael Chiklis).

 

Says Nicholas Snow, “1985 speaks to the pain of withheld truth, separating one loved one from another because of bigotry, ignorance and fear of rejection.  As we reflect on the world as it is over 30 years after 1985 takes place, we must pay tribute to those who took the battle cry seriously:  Silence = Death.
