《在一起》Together : A documentary about AIDS

In 2009, the Chinese film director Gu Changwei seeked out to members of the public, seeking HIV positive participants to be involved in making of the feature film Zui Ai (最爱  Live is a miracle ). He hoped this would increase public awareness of AIDS and also  reduce discriminations against HIV-positive people.

The movie has Zhang Ziyi and Aaron Kwok as top cast. It was released earlier this year, and it quite good. The following documentary is not about the making of the movie. It focuses on three  persons with HIV-positive – their circumstances, hopes, fears and their   involvements in the film making. I find it to be very touching, sad, uplifting and really make one reflects on the essence of life.
