Making Films That Make A Difference: The Other City-A documentary about HIV/AIDS in Washington D.C.

The Other City-In every city there is another city... This conversation with executive film producer Sheila Johnson and her frequent collaborator film director Susan Koch focuses on the making of their documentary -- and the impact of the film since it premiered in 2010.  
The film examines a side of Washington, D.C. that people and tourists barely see or recognize. The capitol of the most powerful country in the world has an HIV/AIDS rate that is not only the nation’s highest, but rivals some African countries. The Other City introduces us to the people who live in the shadow of the Capitol but remain almost invisible to the lawmakers and lobbyists who live there. It’s about politics and ideology, corruption and bureaucracy, and an epidemic that grew out of control while few people paid any attention or cared.
