synopsis

Kgomotso Matsunyane

Southern Africa is at the centre of the global AIDS crisis. Nowhere else in the world is the disease spreading as fast. Every second 15-year-old in South Africa could die by 2010. These grim statistics receive plenty of media attention, but now a group of African film-makers is telling stories of the living rather than the dying. Their films aim to lift the veil of secrecy that sustains the spread of AIDS in Africa.

Duration: 15:00
