Film screening – 5B

Co-directed by Oscar nominated Dan Krauss, 5B is the inspirational story of everyday
heroes, nurses and caregivers who took extraordinary action to comfort, protect and care for the patients of the first AIDS ward unit in the United States. 5B is stirringly told through first-person testimony of these nurses and caregivers who built Ward 5B in 1983 at San Francisco General Hospital, their patients, loved ones, and staff who volunteered to create care practices based in humanity and holistic well-being during a time of great uncertainty.

The result is an uplifting yet candid and bittersweet monument to a pivotal moment in
American history and a celebration of quiet heroes, nurses and caregivers worthy of
renewed recognition.
