Miss HIV| 1hr : 16mins
Director: Jim Hanon | Producer: Mart Green
Focus Years: 2009 | Country: United States
Conflicting ideologies clash with an indiscriminate enemy. "Miss HIV" is the award-winning documentary by director Jim Hanon and producer Mart Green that brings into the open the little-known struggle for dominance over AIDS education and prevention.
The film exposes the heated rhetoric, high stakes, and the heavy toll this battle has taken. "Miss HIV" also explores innovative strategies to counteract one of the largest obstacles in the battle against HIV: stigma, the paralyzing shame brought on by this disease.
"Miss HIV" showcases women in Botswana participating in a stigma-free beauty pageant, college students in Uganda fighting the stigma of their choice to remain abstinent, and gay rights activists at the International AIDS Conference in Toronto combating stigmatization.
Unapologetic and courageous yet consistently inspiring, "Miss HIV" shines a spotlight on the competing agendas that are a complication to an already complex global crisis.
