Dreams of the good life( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Dreams of the good life (15 min.). five South African women talk about life, love and how their dreams for the future have been changed since they found out they are HIV positive. Ho ea rona (17 min.) is about four friends who meet and reminisce about the past. Thabiso was a national boxer; Thabo, known to his friends as Kwasa Kwasa, is a DJ; Bimbo, a true intellectual, is a man of short sentences; and Moalosi an AIDS activist. All four are HIV+. They meet to reflect on their lives, to cry, to reminisce --but also, most importantly, to laugh. Master Positive (8 min.) tells the story of a Namibian coffin maker. This film follows Master Positive as constructs a proto-type papier-mache coffin and makes his first sale. Dealing with death in his job and confronting his own HIV status, Master Positive explains through humour and courage how he has become a master of positive living

House of love: Trapped between sea and desert under a sky of molten lead, the port of Welvis Bay in Namibia is an open prison for a small community of women forced to prostitute themselves for a living. Isolated, dependent, awaiting the few sailors passing through, AIDS is all they have to look forward to. Discreetly, Cecil Moller records statements of the experience of these women, their own stories, their daily combat and their hopes for redemption, supported by religious movements that preach their rehabilitation
