Rory Kennedy has done an outstanding job depicting the human face of AIDS in some of the world's most severely afflicted countries. You cannot come away from this film without an added awareness of the scope of this disease and the lives affected by it. It is not, however, a horribly depressing film. While Kennedy has painted a very real picture, she also focuses on the successes now possible with effective prevention, testing, and treatment. Human tenaciousness is alive in every segment and the film balances hope and despair beautifully. I found it riveting and moving - made all the more haunting by Philip Glass's music. Highly recommended.

We would still have our heads in the sand about this epidemic. We learn how some people became victims, what their familiies thought, who it affected besides themselves, how the world views AIDS. It is really an eye-opener and you will not be able to walk away without your sensitivity to the situation being heightened. The viewer will learn a lot about world history and be faced with a reality that is far from the common.

Format: DVD
Excellent documentary that shows real people affected by AIDS in five different locations around the world, Moscow, Rio de Janeiro, and villages in Uganda, Thailand and India. The selection of places and cases covers the main modes of transmission, all types of AIDS victims, and all approaches to combat it. It is a very balanced view, very professionally done.

My favorites were the episodes on getting tested and on living with AIDS. The positive tone is uplifting. Brazil shows that the government can make a huge difference. Uganda and Thailand show how grassroots initiatives effectively help. On the other hand, Russia shows the ugly face of neglect and discrimination. Highly recommendable. The only prominent omission is South Africa, from which we can also learn a lot (on how not to go about fighting AIDS), but it is a film about how AIDS affects real people, not an official report on it.
