Alone Together; Young Adults Living With HIV

USA, 1994 (MIFF 1995, Youth Film Festival)

Director: Steven Okazaki

AIDS is now the leading cause of death among young Americans. One in five cases is diagnosed among young people. Alone Together humanises these stark statistics and allows the young voices to speak honestly and with dignity. The young people come from vastly diverse backgrounds, yet each is able to speak with sensitive and powerful insight into their past, present and futures.
