In honor of World AIDS Day, NYU Wagner presents a screening of "Buddies," the first dramatic film about AIDS. 

Released in 1985 and shot on a shoestring budget, the film depicts the relationship between a person with AIDS and his volunteer buddy. The film co-stars Geoff Edholm and David Schachter (Tisch BFA, 1982; Wagner MPA, 1994; Wagner Associate Dean for Admissions and Student Affairs) and was directed and written by Arthur J. Bressan, Jr. A Q&A with David Schachter will follow the screening.
