An interesting look at South Africa's handling of AIDS
State of Denial, soon to be shown at the Sundance Film Festival, offers a unique view into South Africa and the AIDS Epidemic there. Each story that told is unique look at living with AIDS and gives the viewer a face to connect with the disease. In addition the film offers a glimpse into the South African government's handling of the AIDS epidemic showing how the government is, in a sense, in paralysis to make any effort to combat the disease in anyway.
Each story told has a familiarity that can be associated with anyone which allows for a personal connection to take place between the viewer and the film. The Director has taken great pains and it seems to me, at least, that this is indeed a very personal project for her. In short this film is......A documentary film that makes you think, feel, and respond.
