Last Address: A Remembrance of Loss

Last Address is a quietly elegiac documentary short film by filmmaker Ira Sachs that uses exterior images of the houses, apartment buildings and lofts where a group of New York City artists who died of AIDS were living at the time of their deaths to mark the disappearance of a generation.

Keith Haring, Robert Mapplethorpe, Norman René, Peter Hujar, Ethyl Eichelberger, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Cookie Mueller, Klaus Nomi…the list of New York artists who died of AIDS over the last 30 years is countless, and the loss immeasurable. Last Address is a remembrance of that loss, as well as an evocation of the continued presence of these artists’ works in our lives and culture.
