QUIET HEROES

2018 – USA – English – 70 minutes

Director Jenny Mackenzie (Kick Like a Girl) unearths the incredible and moving story of Dr. Kristen Reis, a driven infectious disease specialist who arrived to start her new job (and life) in Salt Lake City the same day as the Center for Disease Control published its first report on what would become known as AIDS.  Due to the growing stigma surrounding the disease, Reis assembled a network of mostly catholic nuns to treat AIDS patients, and in so doing helped develop revolutionary protocols to remediate the disease. This is an inspiring and uplifting film.
