This is the first I'd heard of The Other City, and I am always at the movies/seeking out independent features. Promotion is a major factor in how people decide to see films, but I would also go so far as to suggest that AIDS "no longer matters" in mainstream culture. That is, even while it may still be stigmatized in some circles, the mythbusting campaigns of the 90s and advances in drug therapies has relegated HIV/AIDS to the long list of other terminal but manageable diseases. It's still very important to give the invisible a platform. HIV/AIDS should not be ignored.

Thanks for your feedback. I can't say I disagree with you, JP. I went to see the movie for work-related reasons. It's not the kind of movie I'd ordinarily go see at a movie theater. Now, if I ran across it on cable or on regular TV, I'd probably watch it. But that's only because I like watching documentaries--but then again, I'm a PBS fan.

A movie about the trials and tribulations of HIV-positive people? Why am I not surprised that I've never heard about this movie. And, honestly, would I go see it if I had? I'd have to say no--unless someone close to me was affected. The reality is that people tend to be very apathetic in general. And in times like these, when most everyone is hurting, other people's suffering is not what concerns us most. Kinda selfish, yes. But there it is. All that said, some of us are able to empathize with other people's pain. Thank God for those angels who walk among us!
