Upcoming Film

Wilhemina’s War

  • Thursday, December 1, 2016
  • 12:00 noon CT
  • ACB 240

Wilhemina’s War explores the lives of Southern African American women and families living with HIV/AIDS. In much of America, progress in HIV/AIDS treatment suggests the worst is behind us, but every year 50,000 Americans are still diagnosed with the virus that causes AIDS. Astonishingly, it’s one of the leading causes of death of African American women—80% of women living with HIV in South Carolina are African American. And nearly half of the Americans with HIV live in the South, where the AIDS epidemic has taken root in rural communities.

Wilhemina’s War is an intimate, personal narrative that tells the story of one family’s struggle with HIV and one woman’s tireless work to combat stigma and care for her daughter and granddaughter, both HIV positive. The film bears witness to the resilience and determination of the human spirit in the face of tremendous adversity.
