Watch the Day With(out) Art 2020: Transmissions Films
The selected films for World With(out) Art Day 2020: Transmissions will not be available for viewing until the evening of November 30th, 2020, when Visual Aids premiers them to the public. Check back on November 30th, or anytime in December 2020 to view the films on the VMG site.
For Day With(out) Art 2020, Visual AIDS presents TRANSMISSIONS, a program of six new videos considering the impact of HIV and AIDS beyond the United States.
The video program brings together artists working across the world:
00:21 Las Indetectables (Chile)
06:50 Lucía Egaña Rojas (Chile/Spain)
14:37 Charan Singh (India/UK)
23:20 George Stanley Nsamba (Uganda)
31:30 Jorge Bordello (Mexico)
38:36 Gevi Dimitrakopoulou (Greece)
The program does not intend to give a comprehensive account of the global AIDS epidemic, but provides a platform for a diversity of voices from beyond the United States, offering insight into the divergent and overlapping experiences of people living with HIV around the world today. The six commissioned videos cover a broad range of subjects, such as the erasure of women living with HIV in South America, ineffective Western public health campaigns in India, and the realities of stigma and disclosure for young people in Uganda.
As the world continues to adapt to living with a new virus, COVID-19, these videos offer an opportunity to reflect on the resonances and differences between the two epidemics and their uneven distribution across geography, race, and gender.
