Project Description

Whisper down the lane / Documentation Film and Photography

In a village in Kenya, four women talk about their life. Not all of them are infected, but they all made life changing experiences concerning HIV/Aids. Apprehensible HIV does not only emerge as a virus but as fear inside people too. In the area rumors go round and a lot of people believe them. Legends and myths, half-truths and prejudices have negative effects on society.
Tabooing, stigmatization and violence are the consequences the women were confronted with.
Employees in social organizations on site are talking about the experiences they made during their work. There is positive progression, but peoples fear is a mighty opponent in the fight against HIV and Aids.
