We mentioned a documentary a little while back calleddeepsouthabout the under-reported, under-funded and fast growing HIV epidemic in the American South. Well, exactly a month from now, the documentary will be premiering at the Landmark E Street Cinema during the International AIDS Conference and we here at Virally Suppressed can’t wait. As a matter of fact, we’re not going to wait and to prove it, we’ve got what could be seen as a preface or prologue to the film that will debut July 24th. The following short film by Director Lisa Biagiotti isLiving With HIV in Mississippi. It is a brief look at the life of one positive woman trying navigate through a landscape that is not only unsupportive, but often downright hostile.
I hope that you enjoy the clip below and that you come out to the Landmark E Street Cinema on July 24-25 and you can pre-order tickets from deepsouth‘s website here:
Don’t worry if you don’t live near DC either, plans are in the works (hopefully) to send the film out to theaters all over the south (and maybe north of the Mason-Dixon too).
