KQED | This Week: "The Grove" Filmmaker interview | PBS

Duration: 06:15

Filmmaker Andy Abrahams Wilson discusses "The Grove" with Belva Davis, host of KQED's "This Week in Northern California." This documentary tells the story of the National AIDS Memorial Grove, a seven acre sanctuary hidden in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, which pays tribute to the hundreds of thousands of people in the United States who died from AIDS. The Grove, which has helped a community in crisis find healing and remembrance in nature, grew into something larger than imagined. But the fight to remember takes an unexpected turn when stakeholders of the Grove seek broader public recognition and a heated debate ensues about what constitutes an appropriate memorial to the AIDS epidemic, and what is the responsibility of a national memorial. "The Grove" premiers December 1st on PBS stations around the country, including on KQED World at 10pm. It will air again on KQED-9 on December 12th at 10pm.
