Abstract:

This unique documentary goes beyond the statistics of the AIDS epidemic among black women. It is a deeply personal exploration of the bedroom politics that make black women, and in fact all women, especially vulnerable to infection. The film follows a young female doctor, Mehret Mandefro, working in the south Bronx, as she gives medical and emotional support to her afflicted patients. Mehret is battling not only the virus, but the social conditions that leave these women so vulnerable. Focusing on two women, Chevelle and Tara, she explores their lives and how their early experience of abuse contributed to their inability to demand protected sex of their mates . She forms a support group where women patients confide in and comfort one another. As Chevelle and Tara strive for more power in their lives and relationships, Mehret expands her research to include women across boundaries of race, class and country. She realizes that even she, a Harvard- educated physician, faces a dangerous power imbalance in the bedroom. A provocative film to use in many areas of the curriculum.
