Lifecycles: A Story of AIDS in Malawi

Film Trailer
DVCAM — 52min TV Documentary

In a country where 200 die of AIDS every day, a new way of life is emerging. Lifecycles explores the themes of sex, witchcraft, poverty, death and religion in the face of AIDS. With a soulful soundtrack from Bobby McFerrin, the film was shot over eight months in country and encompasses both the depth and breadth of a culture under siege. Earnest and uplifted, the film uses the words of Malawians to reveal a nation for whom illness is mistaken for a witch’s spell and physical love is dangerous.
