    25 To Life 
    (Supertrailer)
    Mike Brown, 2012, 8 min.
    A super trailer for a feature documentary film about William Brawner, a young man who kept his HIV status a secret for over twenty-five years, since he was two years old. Now he seeks redemption from his promiscuous past, and embarks on a new phase of life with his wife who is HIV negative.
    The Carrier 
    Maggie Betts, 2011, 88 min. 
    When 28-year-old Mutinta Mweemba first shares all the hopes and dreams she once nurtured as a child, her aspirations seem no different from those of many other young women around the world. She dreams of meeting and falling in love with a handsome man, being married and raising children and hopefully one day providing those children with a better life than her own. But Mutinta's dreams were never realized. Her soft-spoken husband came with two other wives, and the remote Zambian village that she calls home is being ravaged by a deadly new epidemic -- a mysterious disease called AIDS. The Carrier is a story of hope and renewal, of love and dignity, told through the eyes of an increasingly determined young heroine who refuses to be overwhelmed by the forces that surround her. It is an inspiring and emotional testament to today's modern Africa and a proud people struggling not only to understand and make sense of, but also persevere and overcome what has happened to their world.
