A few examples of InCHIP Affilliate Lisa Butler’s film work related to HIV/AIDS.

  • The Power of Knowing : Produced Worldwide, there are about 3.3 million children under 15 years of age living with HIV. Despite the many benefits of knowing their status, the vast majority of these children, even amongst those on treatment, have not been told that they are HIV positive. The Power of Knowing reveals the stories of young South Africans who have found out their status and recounts their experience – and those of their primary caregivers.
  • Youth Perspective on HIV/AIDS in South Africa  WOZA asks why do you think the Youth of South Africa are not testing for HIV/AIDS and how do you think we can increase youth linkage to HIV testing, care, and treatment?


  • AIDS in Black America : Every 10 minutes, someone in the U.S. contracts HIV. Half are black. Thirty years after the discovery of the AIDS virus among gay white men, nearly half of the 1 million people in the United States infected with HIV are black men, women and children.
  • Clips from Wilhemina’s War: In much of America, progress in HIV/AIDS treatment and improvement in education may suggest the worst is behind us, but every year 50,000 Americans are still diagnosed with the virus that causes AIDS. Astonishingly, nearly half of them live in the South, where the AIDS epidemic has taken root in rural communities, and is one of the leading causes of death among black women.


  • How To Survive A Plague: Documentary centered around the grassroots movements ACT UP and the Treatment Action Group that came up during the AIDS crisis beginning in the 1980’s.
