    This video is heartbreaking! I remember watching this video back in the nineties, i was entering my teenage years just as the AIDS scare was at its height. They made us watch this film at school and I cried so hard! It certainly opened our young minds to the world. xx

    You know, no matter what u r going through, illness, death,  depression,  sadness or anxiety--if u take the time to go to the window and view the landscape outside. The sun still rises, the trees are there thriving or standing in the winter, people still walking about their business, if you feel it, open the window--breeze of air still takes your breath. Those things never change. At the beginning of this video--when the camera zoomed in the square shaped windows and the sun shinning from a distance, i was momentarily comfortable amidst this tsunami of sadness.

    Cried like a baby. It's two spirits who left their vessel. God loves everyone. Let this help millions be to be careful but also know that we are all in the same world. That maybe against all religions of their sexuality but in reality this could happen to straight people so nobody is better than anybody. May they Rest In Peace.

    u  know food is something amazing. I am serious. I am not a foodie, not a fan. but the scene where they were eating in a well lit restaurant--when he said I have food in my mouth, it made me forget they had aids. I was in the moment--ogling at the food. I need to go out and enjoy a good meal.

  • ysiad tnarb 2017-01-31 05:18:45
    This deserves way more views; It pains me to think that a video of someone making slime has more views than this. This is truly an exquisite piece of art that has an immense impact. Thank you so much for sharing this with the world.
