hey this is horrible of me. but i'm really excited about this cause the documentary i helped make in Swaziland is showing tonight at GVSU.... (it's not the one about the artists community) so i'm posting it in my blog-a-log-log.
FREE TONIGHT (Wed Nov 30th) at GVSU at 7:30pm the documentary 'Dear Francis' will be screened in the Kirkhof Center (215/216) to take part of HIV/AIDS Awareness week.
I hope some of you can make it!
visit dearfrancis.org to view the trailer.
dvds will also be for sale and the a good portion of the dvd profits will go to help build 6 foster homes in Swaziland. or if you have your own idea about where else it can be screened let me know... we can set something up. it's been accepted into different festivals around the country so come one come all tonight.
Dear Francis puts a face to the AIDS pandemic as it chronicles the personal stories of two strangers and the Swazis they befriend. After the UN officially declared the small African kingdom of Swaziland to be the world's most HIV-infected nation, Lance and Kelly, two Texas college students with high ideals, great hopes, and a bit of naiveté, embark on a most unconventional AIDS prevention program. Developing relationships with their students, they discover that the causes of this plague are much more disturbing and complex than they could have ever imagined. Through this unique story and interviews with Swaziland's leading experts, the film highlights the hope of a nation's future against seemingly insurmountable odds... one life at a time.
