In Chile, people living with HIV fear stigma, and often conceal their condition and remain silent about what they are going through. This is My Face explores what happens when a range of men living with the virus open up about the illness that changed their life trajectories. It follows a creative process whereby they produce photographic portraits that represent their (often painful) memories and feelings, a process which helps them challenge years of silence, shame, and misrepresentation. A lesson in the power of collaborative storytelling.
Director Angélica Cabezas Pino will attend the screening and take part in a Q&A.
This film will screen alongside two other short films: Niishii (Night Worlds) and Walker's.
