Chiedza’s Song for Schools, Part 1

(Shona with English subtitles)

Download from Vimeo:         

This film is designed to spark discussion. The film raises themes about the mores of love between HIV positive and HIV negative partners, whether partners should open up to each other, how they should do it, and whether negative people should run away from relationships with HIV positive people. It looks at reasons why adults do not take children to be tested. And it looks at the influence of prophets who claim to heal HIV, telling vulnerable adolescents that they no longer need to take their medicines. Part 1 ends when Tatenda, one of the two main characters, comes out from behind the screen in the community hall to seek advice from the audience about his feelings for Chiedza – opening up the space for a moderated discussion with the audience.
