Silverlake Life: The View from Here is a 1993 documentary film by director Peter Friedman and Tom Joslin. Shot with a hand-held video camera, the film documents the final months of a relationship between two gay men — Tom Joslin and his partner, Mark Massi — as they both struggle to deal with AIDS. The journey that Tom and Mark face as two partners dying of AIDS is to demonstrate realistically how their lives changed. Everyday tasks became chores until the last day of Tom's life came upon them. The honest and realistic portrayal allows the audience to see behind the scenes of a person affected by HIV.
