A Tale of Two Cities
Many have said the District of Columbia is not one city, but two cities. The title of the powerful documentary The Other City captures that sentiment and the film brazenly illustrates it to us. While Washington, DC is home of arguably the most powerful political system in the world it is also home of an ever increasing epidemic of HIV/AIDS. Statistics of infection rival that of sub-Saharan African nations. The Other City enters the lives of several people in the District living with HIV and tells their stories, the stories of nearly 3% of District residents. The film begins a limited engagement run at E Street Cinema September 17. Click here for show times.
