FRIDAY OCTOBER 23 (SESSION 21)

Director: Dylan Mohan Gray

Description:

From Durban To Tomorrow 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 five 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.
