Are you out of the box? Stay tuned for video launch

In Dec 2008 - Jan/Feb 2009 I worked with five secondary school students on a mini documentary for TTCRC (Trinidad and Tobago Coalition for the Convention on the Rights of the Child). This mini doc was entitled: "Out of the Box".
The girls had never (knowingly) met an HIV positive person before. In their experience of filming "Out of the Box", they met and worked with Lorna Henry, a woman/wife/ mother living with HIV. Through her, the girls came to realise that the face of HIV does not always hide and does not always fit the stereotype.

Tune in later today on this blog for the online launch of "Out of the Box". As with this (offline) screening last year, discussion is encouraged. We look forward to your comments.
The girls and Lorna.
