P.O.V.: State of Denial

South African president Thabo Mbeki is in a “State of Denial” about his country's AIDS crisis---with tragic results. That's the contention of this angry, haunting report, filmed between 2000 and 2002 by director-producer Elaine Epstein, a South African native. Epstein intercuts profiles of AIDS patients (two of them children) and activists with segments chronicling the Mbeki government's efforts to deal with AIDS while refusing to acknowledge its link to HIV---and refusing to sanction widespread use of anti-HIV drugs.
