On December 1st (World AIDS Day) join ImageNation Cinema Foundation and Urbanworld (AFFRM NY Partners) to see the award-winning documentary film 25 to LIFE. Screenings will be followed by a talkback with the filmmakers and special guests.
25 to LIFE chronicles the story of William Brawner, a Howard University alum, who kept his HIV positive status a secret for over twenty-five years (including while engaging in unsafe sex on campus). Now, William seeks redemption from his promiscuous past as he embarks on a new phase of life with his wife who is HIV Negative. We journey with William and his family as he struggles to carve out an open and honest future. 25 TO LIFE is supported by Sundance Institute, Cinereach, The GoodPitch, IFP, Firelight Media Lab, and Tribeca All Access and is the 2014 American Black Film Festival Grand Prize Jury winner.
