Peter Friedman and Tom Joslin

Silverlake Life: The View From Here (1993), by Peter Friedman and Tom Joslin, has had a lasting impact on documentary filmmaking, especially the personal narrative doc. The film beautifully and heartbreakingly edits together home videos of a gay couple (the footage begins in 1989) during their inexorable AIDS related decline.
