Through Positive Eyes is a 28-min. documentary about two HIV-positive protagonists: Mary Bowman (23), poet and performance artist; and D’Angelo Morrison (22), budding HIV/AIDS and LGBT youth advocate and activist.
The film shows the journey Mary and D’Angelo take from overcoming discrimination from within their families and fear of disclosing their status publicly, to gaining the confidence and strength to become advocates for reducing stigma around HIV/AIDS. It shows how being infected today is not a death sentence but it’s no walk in the park either. By documenting their own lives using cameras and thereby disclosing their status to a wider public, Mary and D’Angelo give us a unique and intimate perspective on an illness made worse by people’s attitudes towards it and show us that the human spirit is sometimes strongest in the face of adversity.
