Abstract:

Master Positive tells the story of an HIV-positive Namibian coffin maker, Simon Elago. Follows Simon as he constructs a prototype papier-mache coffin and makes his first sale. Simon strives through humor and a positive outlook to overcome the social and personal consequences of the virus.

Not afraid tells the story of Cathy from Namibia, who is 36 and has four children. During her second marriage, she got pregnant four times but lost the baby on each occasion. During her fourth pregnancy she took an HIV test, and was told that she was HIV-positive as she was going into labor. Not only was she informed insensitively at an inappropriate moment with no counseling, she also received no special care for the delivery of her child. Born prematurely, her baby had to remain in hospital but did not survive. Cathy now counsels HIV-positive people.
