This World AIDS Day special program will be followed by Seeds of Hope: Meeting the Challenges of HIV/AIDS in Ethiopia at 7:30 pm. This five film series was produced and directed by Dorothy Fadiman and explores recent efforts in Ethiopia to battle the stigma and break the silence surrounding HIV/AIDS and find innovative solutions to prevention and education. Dorothy Fadiman has been making documentary films around social justice for 40 years through her Menlo Park-based production company, Concentric Media.
This 3-hour block of programming pre-empts regular programming on Channel 28 and provides an evening of reflection and acknowledgement that although HIV/AIDS is still very much a deadly epidemic, transforming work is being done abroad by people in our own communities — whether they be non-profit leaders like Stime and Laugharn or investigative filmmakers like Fadiman.
