WILHEMINA’S WAR

Expected to Attend: Director June Cross

WORLD PREMIERE While the perception of AIDS in America has changed from the death sentence it once was to a disease managed by medicine, in the deep South, HIV continues to claim the lives of rural black women in epidemic numbers. Despite facing institutional and personal obstacles every step of the way, 62-year-old Wilhemina Dixon works tirelessly to combat the stigma and care for her daughter and granddaughter, both HIV+.

This film is preceded by Open Your Eyes.

This screening is co-presented with theĀ Black Documentary Collective.
