Looking Good - Steps for the Future

DIR: Teboho Edkins
2005 / South Africa / 47 min

Film unavailable :-(

Sorry, this film is no longer available.

His doctor says he is looking good, but he doesn’t always feel so good. He is most honest when he films himself, when the camera he operates in his room catches a moment or a lingering self-portrait.

The documentary follows the life of Moalosi Thabane for twelve months as he starts taking antiretroviral medicines when his CD4 blood count drops to 82. ARV medicine became available in countries across Southern Africa for free for the first time in 2004.

For those able to access the treatment, AIDS has become a chronic disease, no longer a life-threatening one.

'Looking Good' is an original, contemporary film about a change in perspective for those living with HIV and AIDS in Southern Africa.
