Open Arts professor Joseph Dorman's documentary "Don Quixote in Newark" will premiere on PBS and Amazon Prime Video on June 8th. 

"Don Quixote in Newark" tells the inspiring story of James Oleske, the New Jersey pediatrician who identified HIV/AIDS in children. His scientific breakthrough, the outcome of dedicated work in an underfunded community hospital, changed the profile of AIDS forever and was instrumental in the discovery of the HIV virus. At the same time, his remarkable work spearheaded new forms of patient care.

A trailer for the film can be viewed on the PBS website.
