Lucy Starbuck / Alannah Campion (England/Uganda)
A Woman's Face is a documentary short exploring the link
between gender inequality and the disproportionate spread of HIV and
AIDS among women in Sub-Saharan Africa. Filmed on location in Kampala,
Uganda, the filmmakers ask women in different communities if they
feel men and women are equal in Uganda today. Women offer a wide range
of answers, spanning the class system and highlighting the multiple
truths and complexities of AIDS in Africa today.
A Woman's Face is a graduation piece undertaken as part of the Honors
Bachelor of Arts Film and Video Production program at the Surrey Institute
of Art and Design University in the U.K. This work was the product
of a collaboration between four young filmmakers. First time director
Lucy Starbuck enlisted the help of fellow film students Alannah Campion
as producer, Andi Smith as cinematographer and Jonas B. Stockfleth
as editor to bring her proposal to life.
