HBO series looks into the faces of AIDS

Boston Globe Online / Living | Arts / HBO series looks into the faces of AIDS. For the next few Sundays (starting tonight at 7 and 7:30 -- whoops, missed it), HBO is presenting a series of 5 films produced by Robert Kennedy's youngest daughter, Rory Kennedy. The series, entitled "Pandemic: Facing AIDS," presents anecdotal snapshots of individuals suffering with HIV/AIDS in 5 different countries throughout the world. For those of you who are convinced that HIV/AIDS is "not my problem," please take the time to watch the films and reevaluate afterwards whether or not you still think HIV is not a problem. The films attempt to show how heavily HIV has imposed huge social and economic burdens on today's populations. You can learn more by perusing the film's website.
