For a stretch of time in the 1980s and 90s, the word buddy meant, in modern gay life, someone who had agreed to be a friend to a man dying of AIDS. A buddy visited. Listened to stories. Told stories. Laughed. Cried. And above all, tried to make sure that the frail man in the bed knew that he had not been forgotten. That his passing would be noted. And mourned. David (David Schachter), a naive graduate student, has volunteered to work as a 'buddy' for people dying of AIDS. Assigned to the intensely political Robert (Geoff Edholm), a lifelong activist whose friends and family have abandoned him following his diagnosis, the two men, each with notably different world views, soon discover common bonds, as David's inner activist awakens and Robert's need for emotional release is fulfilled. In the 1985 film Buddies, writer-director Arthur J. Bressan Jr. did a simple yet radical thing: He told the story of one such friendship and, in the process, made the first feature-length drama about AIDS. Shot on 16mm film in nine days, Buddies earned respectful reviews and a few festival prizes, but has faded from view over the years. Bressan died of AIDS in July 1987; now, thanks to the efforts of his sister Roe Bressan and film historian Jenni Olson, Buddies has received a 2K digital restoration from Vinegar Syndrome. Thirty-three years after its initial release, the film remains as affecting as ever. - Village Voice - Newly scanned and restored from 16mm camera negative- - Original theatrical trailer - Archival still/news/ production article gallery - English SDH subtitles

Asperger syndrome (AS), also known as Asperger's syndrome, Asperger disorder (AD) or simply Asperger's, is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. Many people are afflicted with and suffer from Asperger's, and there is little to no understanding by the general public in regards to this syndrome. There is a lack of awareness, so when people encounter someone who has Asperger's they view them strangely because aspies (as they commonly refer to themselves) act and communicate differently from the rest of society, so they are easily misunderstood. In his book entitled Asperger Syndrome, author and Asperger expert Frank Ryan offers a comprehensive guide for understanding, living with, and treating Asperger syndrome. Here are some of the topics covered: Detailed overview and history of Asperger syndrome Effects of the syndrome on social interactions Effects of the syndrome on behavior and interests Effects of the syndrome on speech and language Effects of the syndrome on motor and sensory perception Therapies and medication Alternative therapies and treatments Available aids Children who suffer from Asperger Adults who suffer from Asperger How to deal with and manage a loved one who has Asperger And much more 1.
