Jim Hubbard: Nostalgia

Nostalgia is a new collaboration between filmmaker Jim Hubbard (United in Anger: A History of ACT UP) and composers Chris Cochrane and Kevin Bud Jones. Hubbard has been commissioned by the New York City AIDS Memorial to create a new experimental film about death and memory, utilizing newly shot footage as well as footage culled from his extensive archive, built over the past 40 years. Images of dead friends appear ghost-like in a window, overlooking the industrial and partially gentrified Bronx. Shots of Hubbard’s deceased lover, Roger Jacoby, are intercut with footage shot by Hubbard around the world, placing Roger’s body in locations he was never able to go during his lifetime. Apparitions of safe sex are abstracted in order to explore its joys, frustrations, and strangeness. Recollections of friends who have died restore an emotional connection to the devastation of the AIDS crisis, a reminder that life persists despite loss and change.  The music will be performed live by Chris Cochrane and Kevin Bud Jones, with Jim Pugliese and the screening will take place at the LGBT Community Center in Room 101.
