SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – A documentary by Utah filmmakers was awarded a Daytime Emmy. The film shares how two medical professionals stood up in the face of adversity to treat the patients no one else would.

The film Quiet Heroes premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

It explores how the “socially conservative religious monoculture” complicated the AIDS crisis in Salt Lake City. Quiet Heroes documents how patients were exiled by politicians, religious organizations, and the medical community.

The film follows Dr. Kristen Ries and Physician Assistant Maggie Snyder as they operated the only medical practice in Utah to treat patients with HIV and AIDS.

The documentary won the 46th annual Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Special Class Special.
