Here is the film made of long-term AIDS survivors. Instead of being a documentary, it is a compilation of talking head snippets arranged into a message created by the film-maker. I feel misled. I do appear saying “forty years.” At the time I thought it odd that I did not fill out any paperwork or sign a release – something ALWAYS done with interviewees.
So, I am still open to and hoping to find someone to work with in making an actual documentary on long-term AIDS survivors.
I contacted the film-maker several times, but never heard back from him. When this film was aired, I went over his head and contacted the overseer of the program. This prompted an immediate response from the film-maker, apologizing for having “missed” my emails.
