Summary
"Under the auspices of Mirabai Films and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the AIDS JaaGO project presents four short dramatic films by cutting-edge Indian directors, Mira Nair, Vishal Bhardwaj, Santosh Sivan and Farhan Akhtar, who aim to dismantle myths and misconceptions about HIV / AIDS." -- Container.
"Mira Nair's Migration deals with the AIDS virus as the great class leveler in society by following its transmission through interweaving stories linking urban and rural India. Blood Brothers, directed by award-winning new wave director Vishal Bhardwaj stars Siddhartha (Rang De Basanti) as a young man who gets a positive HIV diagnosis and subsequently allows his life to fall apart. Farhan Akhtar's Positive follows the story of a young boy and his parents and how they cope with the devastation that AIDS can visit on the family. Prarambha - The Beginning, directed by renowned cinematographer and director Santosh Sivan, features South Indian superstar Prabhudeva as a truck driver who discovers a young boy stowed away in his vehicle. Sivan explores the question of how society deals with those who are infected." -- Container.
