Description
Program Description
"'Other Faces of AIDS' is a one-hour documentary dealing with the impact of the AIDS epidemic on minority communities in the United States. Despite numerous public information campaigns, tremendous media attention and the general increase in public awareness about AIDS, the message doesn't seem to have gotten out in minority communities effectively. The immediate question is WHY' Why is the AIDS infection rate growing in minority communities at such a high rate' Has the reality of AIDS been accepted by minorities' What will the long term impact of the disease be in these communities' And finally, what steps are necessary to halt the spread of AIDS there' "'Other Faces of AIDS' addresses these important issues directly in straight forward and often blunt terms. The program builds on a number of key interviews with government officials, national leaders, health professionals, and community organizers to provide a candid analysis of the situation in the nation's minority communities. It also reviews what has been done in the past to recognize and address the epidemic and what must be done in the future to reverse the situation. In addition, the program focuses on the lives of a number of AIDS patients whose first-hand experience fighting the disease leaves little doubt as to the severity of the problem. "The documentary was produced on location in urban areas around the country. In each of the cities featured, we focus not only on the scope of the AIDS problem there, but on the various community based organizations working to provide information, assistance and guidance to local residents."--1989 Peabody Awards entry form.
