The BATTLE of AMFAR
About the Film
About the Director
Two-time Academy Award®-winners Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman tell the story of two very different women––icon Elizabeth Taylor and scientist Dr. Mathilde Krim––who joined forces to create America’s first AIDS research foundation.
Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman are among the few directors, writers, and producers in the independent film world traversing non-fiction and scripted narrative. Rob and Jeff's partnership began in 1987 when they opened an office in a former convent and Catholic girl’s school in San Francisco and founded Telling Pictures. Their films have screened throughout the world in movie theaters, at major film festivals (including Sundance, Berlin, Venice, Telluride, Toronto, and New York), and on television and home video. Between them they have received two Academy Awards, five Emmy Awards, three Peabodys, and Guggenheim and Rockefeller Fellowships.
