About

Our Mission

This is a documentary about the people who are fighting the virus; doctors, scientists, organizations, and the individuals all around the world who are living with the infection since the 1980s.

Since HIV does not differentiate between race, sexuality, nationality or age, neither should we.

We have all become involved and united globally in using our knowledge to combat this virus, although mainly on a somatic level. Somehow, we often seem to forget the very important psychological battle in the war against HIV: the battle against stigma.

According to the World Health Organization there were approximately 36.9 million people worldwide living with HIV/AIDS at the end of 2014. Many of them hide from society, scared because they do not know about the latest scientific advances made towards wiping out this epidemic, and because stigma, in many cases, keeps them from searching this knowledge.

This documentary aims to show you the truth about HIV, the latest treatments and the path towards finding a cure.

We are following people living with stigma all the way from the USA to Kenya, from Sweden to Thailand. We are taking a look at the global perspective when it comes to both the stigma, the scientific research and the experience of HIV. This documentary shall be a tribute to all the people who have worked hard to get us where we are today, so close to eradicating this virus.

Medicine is already treating HIV. This documentary will treat the stigma.

What We Have

We have filmed 15 interviews in San Francisco, 3 interviews in Barcelona and we have planned to have 2 more interviews in London in April, but we need more. We need to continue filming and showing how it is to be living with HIV around the world. When standing in front of HIV, we are all equal.

Legal Organization

We are a legal organization in Sweden, because of that, there is a guarantee that all money will be expended for the documentary under the Swedish tax office.

What We Need

We want to create different production teams in several countries, hiring professionals and renting the equipment we need but everything depends on the amount of money we’ll be able to raise. 20.000€ is the minimum we need to pay some professionals and continue with 3 new locations but the more we get, the more we can do, e.g visiting and filming in more locations, professional soundtrack and editing, animations, an app with extra material and just improving anywhere we can.

Stretch Goals

  • If we reach 30,000 euros we will add 2 new locations (5 in total).
  • If we reach 50,000 euros we will add 2 new locations (7 in total).
  • If we reach 75,000 euros or more we can improve the soundtrack and 3D animations

Our Next Locations

Washington DC (USA) Medellín (Colombia) Bangkok (Thailand) Nairobi (Kenya) and more...

All the money will be expended for the documentary and all benefits will be donated to HIV organizations and research.

Risks and challenges

We have decided to make this a scalable project. This means the very first step is reaching our first funding goal to continue producing the documentary. We will deliver all the rewards but if we reach some of our stretch goals the final documentary will be an even better finished product for our backers and the world.

Thank you for your contribution!
