Produced, directed and photographed by Laura Green and Anna Moot-Levin, The Providers follows Matt Probst, Chris Ruge, and Leslie Hayes, three doctors in New Mexico who offer care to all patients, whether or not they can afford it.

For the next presentation in its ongoing screening series, Winston-Salem’s International LGBT Film Festival OUT at the Movies has joined forces with Wake Forest University, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, and Positive Wellness Alliance to present the critically acclaimed independent drama Buddies at the Byrum Welcome Center, located on the Wake Forest campus, 1834 Wake Forest Rd.
The film details the relationship that develops between David (David Schachter), a compassionate gay man, and Robert (Geoff Edholm), an AIDS patient filled with anger and rage over the hand that fate has dealt him – and countless other homosexual men who are dying by the score, while society turns its back on them.
Jim Hemphill of Filmmaker Magazine hailed the film as “modest in scale but generous in its effects, as Bressan carefully constructs one of the most moving friendships I’ve ever seen put on film and elicits a wide variety of responses from the viewer. The movie is touching, angry, funny, depressing, and beautiful, and deftly weaves its political fury into the emotional lives of its characters, both of who are conceived and performed (by David Schachter and Geoff Edholm) with remarkable depth and clarity.
Special guests for this event are actor David Schachter, who soon gave up acting for academic pursuits (and is now a dean at New York University), and the filmmaker’s sister Roe Bressan, who was instrumental in the 2k digital restoration of Buddies for Vinegar Syndrome last year. They will share their memories of the film, its maker, and its enduring impact over the last 30 years.
Although admission to this event is free, an RSVP to 336.918.
