AIDS: Angry Initiatives, Defiant Strategies

John Greyson

1988, 58:00 minutes


While AIDS has received much media attention, many perspectives on the situation have been ignored or distorted. This program looks at facets of the epidemic that have made it to the mainstream media. "Test drugs, not people!" say activists in the inspiring tape "Testing The Limits". In a special report from October 1987 March On Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, there is documentation of the "Names Project" (a huge memorial quilt dedicated to those who have died of AIDS). The show also includes Alexandra Juhasz's and Jean Carlomusto's "Women and AIDS".
