POSITIVE: Russian documentary with English subtitles

Alina Alieva (director)

"POSITIVE" is a documentary with stunning, funny, sad and simple stories from people living with HIV. The characters of the film are very different people, like us. But they are united by a common problem - HIV infection. Someone from the protogonists has a positive status, someone does not have, but gives all his strength to cope with the HIV epidemic in Russia, and someone will find out the positive status directly before camera.

All of them are usual average daddies and mums, homosexuals and heterosexuals, psychologists and doctors, former drug users and adherents of a healthy lifestyle - close to us and among us.
