Review

This DVD would enhance collections in support of social justice, public health, womens studies, African studies, human rights, and HIV/AIDS. - Sue Phelps --EMRO Reviews - January 2009

The Republic of Malawi in southeast Africa may be rich in uranium, coal, and bauxite, but it is poor in such economic and health areas as average income (less than $1 per day), life expectancy (age 39.6 for women), and infant mortality rate. Estimates show that 14 percent of women ages 13 to 39 suffer from AIDS. In 2007 four professors and eight students from the Leitner Center for International Law and Justice at Fordham Law School traveled to Africa to document stigma and discrimination against the women of Malawi who are HIV positive. Shot on location in the District of Mangochi, this documentary personalizes the stories of several infected women and children. This film also includes clips from interviews with male villagers, local AIDS activists, educators, and government officials in an effort to paint an accurate picture of the extent of the problem and prospects for the future. Bonus features include a photo picture gallery. A powerful discussion starter for social-studies and world-geography students. Carol Holzberg --Booklist - March 2009

A solid primer on an important topic, this is recommended. --Video Librarian - March 2009
