Seeing Thousands is a 30-minute documentary tribute to the late Yves Yomb, a human rights activist, sexual minority member and HIV activist. Based entirely on an autobiographical text and a mix of archive footage, never before-seen interviews, and intimate animated sequences, the film traces Yves' intimate and political journey in his own words.

Seeing Thousands (2022) is a documentary film by Juan and Pierre Gélas.

Animation: Lisa Cruz.
Music: Patrick Goraguer.

Join us for a screening of Seeing Thousands, followed by a discussion with audience members and a reception!
