From Durban to Tomorrow Film Tour 2019

In September 2019 Sunshine Cinema held a series of preview screenings of the documentary, From Durban to Tomorrow, directed by Dylan Mohan Gray, the director of the acclaimed film, Fire in the Blood (about the global fight for affordable HIV treatment). Framed by two international Aids conferences in Durban, South Africa in 2000 and 2016, five HIV activists from around the world talk about what the HIV/AIDS movement has achieved, and highlight what remains to be done to ensure quality healthcare for all. The film is set as the International Aids Conference – the largest health conference in the world, comes to Durban, South Africa again in 2016, after first taking place there in 2000. The 2000 conference was a watershed, and led to huge breakthroughs in access to AIDS treatment globally. In the film, we visit 5 activists and learn about their work in South Africa, Guinea, Spain, Hungary and India, to ensure access to treatment and quality health care for people who are most vulnerable and marginalized. We hear their hopes and visions for the future, their sense of what is possible, and their calls to a renewed commitment to the fight for universal health care. The screenings reflected on the heritage of HIV/AIDS activism and were free to the public and held this Heritage Month in September in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town with a host of diverse panelists. The screenings were sponsored by The Open Society Foundations Public Health Program. If you would like to screen the film please send us an enquiry and we can connect you with the relevant parties.
