Description

In "Sex in an Epidemic," Jean Carlomusto, a doyenne of AIDS activist video, creates a haunting and elegiac history of US safer sex (video) activism and education. Taking up (and using clips from) Carlomusto’s earliest activist work for GMHC’s groundbreaking cable access show, “Living With AIDS, ” Carlomusto re-animates the lost AIDS activist community of the 1980s and 1990s by editing their accounts and actions into a vibrant testimony to one community's radical efforts at life-saving education. "Sex in an Epidemic" is a moving testament to the power of remembering, representing, learning, and activism.
