Out of the Box (the online launch)

First there was Invisible: Children Living with HIV/AIDS - an awareness-raising mini documentary created for TTCRC (Trinidad and Tobago Coalition for the Convention on the Rights of the Child).Now there is "Out of the Box".



Five secondary school students meet an openly HIV positive woman (Lorna Henry) and discover that the face of HIV doesn't always hide and doesn't always fit the stereotype. Under the guidance of multimedia artist Elspeth Duncan, the girls created this mini film during their experience.

Out of the Box (2009), created for TTCRC (Trinidad and Tobago Coalition for the Convention on the Rights of the Child)
, was funded by UNAIDS and UNDP.

Good job! Those children seem very articulate for their age...and wise.

It's good to see youth being engaged in such a powerful issue. I was blown away.

Lorna's fear that someone will give her children their own version of what HIV is must be very scary for her.

Thanks for sharing this Elspeth.
