HIV today: call for contributors

Simon Blish

Film-makers Paul Coleman and Adam Roberts are looking for LGBT participants to help to make a documentary about the early years and legacy of HIV and experiences of living with HIV today. Working with researchers James Tarling and Ed Middleton, they’re looking for personal testimonies from those who have HIV and those who live with and love those with HIV. In total, they aim to interview 100 people for this ambitious project.

The project will consist of a feature length documentary shown in cinemas and an archive of interviews that will be kept for future researchers to form a history of HIV and AIDS.

The film will reflect the true experience of our history and our lost generation. The project will also include performance pieces and music by artists inspired or involved with the history of HIV, and hopes to be inclusive of all sexualities, genders and ethnicities, including people with or without HIV – anyone touched by AIDS in whatever way can participate.
