    • Synopsis
    • "Positive" is a provocative film that has as main objective the stigma around HIV / AIDS. By presenting women's experiences of "good behavior" who contracted HIV / AIDS from their husbands, the film reveals the veil of silence and hypocrisy that plagues the strings attached marriage. The documentary follows the life of Cida, Heli, Rosario, Ana Paula, Medianeira, Michelle and Silvia, women who were surprised by the news of the disease in a previously safe and "morally right."
