There is a film from years ago that was a documentry by a film maker that shot he and his lover taking vows and documented their love. His partner found out he had AIDS and he kept filming the whole relationship to the point when the hearse closed the door taking his lover away. I have been trying to find the name of this film. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Perhaps you are remembering Tom Joslin and Peter Friedman's "Silverlake Life: The View From Here" (1993). See the discussion of the film in the entry on Documentary Film.

It was a younger couple. They had just met and fell in love and the film was supposed to document their love but turned into documenting living and finally the death. They were in their 20's. It is driving me crazy. was an amazing film and can't remember the title

Thanks for your help

Alan
