Dear Francis

22 Jul

Just bought and watched Dear Francis for the second time. Here’s a blurb and some facts with a trailer attached:

Dear Francis puts a face to the AIDS pandemic as it chronicles the personal stories of two strangers and the Swazis they befriend. Through these relationships, they discover that the causes of this plague are much more disturbing and complex than they could have ever imagined.

Swaziland AIDS facts:
– Of those between the ages of 15-23, 53% of are HIV positive.
– Of rural Swazis, 20% of the children are orphans from HIV/AIDS
– 88% of 15 year-old boys will be dead by 2015 because of AIDS.
