HOWARD ROSENMAN:The the face of a man who has lost over 2000 people to AIDS and has attended over 50 memorials.
I interviewed Howard Rosenman yesterday at his home in West Hollywood. Howard is the producer of such films as The Family Man, The Celluoid Closet, Paragraph 175, The Main Event, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, the stunning, Resurrection with Ellen Burstyn, and he won an Academy Award for Common Threads.
Howard was one of the founders of Project Angel Food and in the early shades of the epidemic, helped create a space at Cedars-Sinai for PWAs and their families to congregate, and has served on several AIDS organization boards throughout the years.
Howard's only acting job to date has been playing Advocate publisher,
David Goodstein in this year's hit, MILK.
Look for the article about Howard in the September issue of A&U magazine.
Thanks to my associate, Jilly Roberts.
