Thing With No Name

a film by Sarah Friedland + Esy Casey ; director, Sarah Friedland ; producers, Sarah Friedland and Esy Casey
Format
Video; DVD
Summary
"In post-apartheid South Africa, life has gotten better, but now there is a disease that has hold on a vanishing population. Sixty-three percent of the world's population infected with HIV/AIDS lives in the country, and in Kwazulu Natal, where the rate of infection in women is twice that of men, one out of every six people is HIV-positive. Thing With No Name follows two Zulu women as they begin rigorous and oftentimes confusing antiretroviral drug therapy. As these women invite us into their homes and share their stories, we witness firsthand the hope these drugs offer. Yet the overwhelming reality is the lack of resources and support available to them undermines their fight to survive in a community where orphans outnumber their counterparts and funerals are daily occurrences. This beautifully shot documentary intimately displays the humanity surrounding this astounding epidemic and proves that those suffering are more than mere statistics"--Abby Kavanaugh from website: http://www.thingwithnoname.org/proposal.htm (as viewed on April 4, 2013).
