Storyline

This documentary examines the world AIDS crisis. The camera travels to Africa, where infections overwhelm the public health system and orphans face their own deaths, central Europe, where drug users spread the disease via shared needles, India, where husbands infect wives, and to the U.S., where grass-roots efforts in places like Kansas City confront cultural stereotypes. Interviews include patients, doctors, nurses, the Dalai Lama, and Kofi Annan. The film's tone is compassionate and urgent, the statistics overwhelming. The message: the AIDS epidemic, history's worst, continues. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A beautifully produced documentary about AIDS in the world.
26 February 2004 | by (Whangarei, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

A beautifully produced and moving documentary about AIDS in the world, especially Africa. There are no actors, but those who affected and those involved tell their stories. Its about the world as it is an the way AIDS impacts upon the world and us. It also carries a sobering warning - its only just begun. To put it another way, "There is a storm coming".

We are not overwhelmed by figures and statistics, just enough are given to help us understand what it is about. This has to be one of the best documentary's on the subject I have seen.

The photography is beautiful, a great deal of effort has gone into the making of this. It should be shown in all our schools to give teenagers an understanding.
