STILL AROUND (film)
October 21, 2011 @ 5:00 pm - 6:25 pm CDTFREE
(The HIV Story Project, Jörg Fockele and Marc Smolowitz, producers; 82min., 2011)
A video quilt that weaves together a diverse array of stories – of men and women, young and old; gay, straight and transgender – all living with HIV. Still Around shares artful testimonials brought together to mark the 30th anniversary of one of the world’s most substantial health pandemics. Produced by the San Francisco-based collective The HIV Story Project, Still Around is a collaboration between subject and filmmaker: each portrait started with an individual living with the disease who wanted to tell their story, a filmmaker then brought in to collaborate on the story’s realization. The results wonderfully vary in form – straightforward documentary, spoken word performance, experimental poetics, a dance piece. But in sum the anthology marks a triumph of voices raised — in courage, in defiance, as witness.
