THE LAST ONE
December 1, 2014  | By David Bianculli

Showtime, 8:30 p.m. ET

 

December 1 is World AIDS Day, and this new documentary looks at the history and current status of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, a patchwork tribute in the best sense of the word. Begun in 1987 by San Francisco activists, it was displayed at the Mall in Washington, D.C. that same year, already having grown larger than a football field and containing 1,920 individual panels, each memorializing a victim of AIDS. Decades later, that quilt has expanded to more than 48,000 panels – and this documentary examines what’s being done to keep the quilt from growing.
