This two-minute film is stylized and artistic, showing the humanness of sex, of relationships and of HIV. The people in the film share their own, diverse stories (they are not professional actors), and many are living with HIV. It builds on IPPF’s Declaration of Sexual Rights and purposefully focuses on sex – irrespective of how, where, with whom and why people have sex. The film looks at laws criminalizing HIV transmission and exposure, but also laws criminalizing practices associated with HIV transmission (drug use, sex work and sex between men).
The documentary short is a commentary from a selection of experts about the criminalization of HIV transmission in England and Wales. It brings together a selection of policy makers, programmers, advocates, academics and people living with HIV to inform the public debate.
Behind Bars is an international collection of interviews published online, and reproduced in the Real Stories section of this site. The stories expose the effect criminalization has on people’s work and private lives. The stories illustrate the personal and professional dilemmas faced by doctors, lawyers, parliamentarians, researchers and advocates; among them a doctor who was forced to aid a police investigation against her ethical principles, a woman living with HIV who prosecuted her former partner and a lawyer who advocated in an HIV transmission case.
