"HIV in India" - Amos Lassen
India is in a state of denial and most Indians feel that to have HIV is to be cursed. They are rejected, not just by society, but by family and friends. We see that India's view of HIV is shallow but we also get a sense of hope that the stories that we see here can help to bring about a better understanding of the disease and perhaps that those with HIV may be able to achieve a dignified life. The four men come across as heroic and indeed represent optimism and the triumph of the human spirit.
The movie is very, very touching as well as a slap to India.
"A landmark film... the way it leaves you moved, is beyond description."
"Personally after ages I have seen a film that touches a chord in my soul...breathtaking, captivating, motivating..."
"The movie inspires us to do more. It's all about how our efforts and gestures can bring a change in others' life."
"Excellent. Life changing, attitude changing"
"I screen hundreds of films in this preview theatre but hardly watch them. Today, I just started watching and saw the entire film and had tears in my eyes."
(~ Projectionist, Star theatre, Mumbai)
"Your film is a slap on the face of society."
"This film has inspired me and I want to become a counsellor."
"Apart from a film about HIV positive people, it is a deeply moving human story"
"The diversity of society members dealing with some issues shows that when it comes to survival we should all gather as people and help each other"
"A beautiful film that humanizes the marginalized face of HIV/AIDS"
"The storylines were all very compelling, and kept me intrigued right till the end. The cinematography and editing were both first-rate. An excellent and important film." Paul Lee | Producer, Curator, Toronto
