Abstract:

The ball tells the story of Mozambican children who use condoms to make soccer balls. In a dramatization, a man confronts them and accuses them of stealing his condoms. This story illustrates that many people are not using condoms for safer sex, despite their availability.

The sky in her eyes tells the story of a young girl in KwaZulu-Natal struggling to come to terms with the death of her mother from AIDS. A young boy befriends her and allows her to attach a drawing of her mother to his kite.
