The Memorial Quilt was started in a San Francisco storefront by the NAMES Project in the summer of 1987...and by the fall of '88, the quilt had grown to include 8,288 panels, each a handmade memorial to a life lost to AIDS. Filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman first witnessed the quilt when it was barely a fraction of its final expanse, and they quickly moved to capture the NAMES Project's process. Their efforts won Epstein and Friedman the Oscar for Best Documentary, attributed to an emotional, vibrant story of a tremendous tragedy that evolved into one of the great protest movements in American history.
