Wilhemina’s War

June Cross‘s Wilhemina’s War will premiere at this year’s DOC NY this November.

“While the perception of AIDS in America has changed from the death sentence it once was to a disease managed by medicine, in the deep South, HIV continues to claim the lives of rural black women in epidemic numbers. Despite facing institutional and personal obstacles every step of the way, 62-year-old Wilhemina Dixon works tirelessly to combat the stigma and care for her daughter and granddaughter, both HIV+.”

Friend Robert Salsbury edited this film that has been in the works for over 5 years.
