Re: “What the Mexico City AIDS conference taught me

Hello - I am an independent film maker here in Atlanta with long years of experience at CNN producing medical and science news. I have produced a 90 minute documentary entitled The AIDS Chronicles - Here to Represent. The AIDS Chronicles - Here to Represent is a unique look at the social and cultural impact of HIV/AIDS on the urban African American population. This work is told through the actions and thoughts of those who are infected or affected by the disease and by African American health experts who dispel the myths and reveal the facts about HIV/AIDS. It includes segments on: African American women and HIV/AIDS Heterosexual, bisexual and homosexual African American men and HIV/AIDS The conflict among the African American churches on how to address HIV/AIDS The convergence of poverty, homelessness, substance abuse and HIV/AIDS Some of the most important social and cultural aspects of HIV/AIDS in the adult African American urban population are covered in very real, personal, balanced and accurate scenes. African American experts who comment in the film, including Phill Wilson (Black AIDS Institute), Mindy Fullilove, MD (Columbia University), David Malebranche, MD (Emory University/Grady Hospital & The President's Commission on HIV/AIDS) and Bill Jenkins, Ph.D (Morehouse College Center on Health Disparities) do not hold back on their assessment of the current situation and the basic preventive actions necessary. This film was almost 5 years in the making. Since it's completion in the fall of 2007, it has been officially selected to show at the following film festivals: Urban Mediamakers Film Festival, 2007 The Atlanta Film Festival, 2008 The San Francisco Black Film Festival, 2008 Sweet Auburn International Film Festival 2008 International Film Festival, South Africa 2008 Mid Atlantic Black Film Festival 2008 Hear a Podcast interview with me about The AIDS Chronicles - Here to Represent at this website: http://www.gapodcastnetwork.com/episodes/3919 You can see more about The AIDS Chronicles - Here to Represent, on my website www.bbarash.com and watch brief excerpts on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpkmkmoa4eE and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N64DIZD81nk and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lb61PSqmzU The AIDS Chronicles - Here to Represent has gotten a strong positive response from African American audiences in the Metro Atlanta area and from Morgan State University and the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention where it has also been shown. Metro Atlanta non-profit organizations like SisterLove, Inc., local health departments, HIV/AIDS education and outreach groups and churches have been showing the film to very receptive audiences. I am distributing the film nationally on my website. Feedback from audiences show that it can be an effective instrument to motivate people to get tested, know their status and protect themselves. If you have any questions or would like a complimentary 20 minute Demo DVD of excerpts from The AIDS Chronicles - Here to Represent, please send me your mailing address. Sincerely, Bailey Barash bailey.barash@gmail.com
