Even Me

Directed by Megan Ebor | California USA
Screening: Friday, October 11, 2013, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM | [Buy Tickets]

Synopsis: Even Me provides an intimate portrait of ethnic minority older adults living with HIV/AIDS, in an effort to dispel the myths that perceive older adults as asexual and therefore not at risk. Despite popular belief, older adults are sexually active and remain sexually active well into there 80s, 90s and beyond. As a result, heterosexual transmission of HIV/AIDS among older adults has risen considerably since the mid 1980s. This film explores aging, sexuality and HIV among ethnic minority older adults. Taking a direct approach in exploring this highly stigmatized topic and exposing the consequences faced by a group that has little knowledge of safer sex practices or their risks of contracting HIV/AIDS, this documentary gives a face to the older adult group that has been identified as an “invisible at-risk population.”
