Thanks to Hank— A Bob Ostertag Film


This is the inspirational story of Hank Wilson, a true unsung hero of the gay liberation movement and the AIDS epidemic which followed, who lead a life of such extraordinary humility and compassion that it will inspire people far beyond the LGBT community.

Unique in it’s focus on the impact of the AIDS epidemic on poor people and people of color, Thanks to Hank tells the story of AIDS activism in the years before ACTUP and demonstrates how early gay liberation activists were people with a much broader vision of social justice than equal rights for gay people.

Featuring the music of the multiple Grammy Award winning Kronos Quartet, and gorgeous hand-made animation by Jeremy Rourke.
