Give AIDS the Freeze

Germany, 1991 (MIFF 1991, Animation)

Director: Cathy Joritz

Give AIDS the Freeze is an extremely entertaining scratchfilm animation. To the tune of Frank Sinatra's Strangers in the Night it provides some sober advice on how to stop the spread of the AIDS virus - get informed; choose your lovers carefully; don't forget the condoms and insist that he wear one! (S.S)
