WORLD AIDS DAY EVE: CHRISSY


THURSDAY,
NOVEMBER 30, 2000,
7 PM

FREE
LECTURE ROOM



DIRECTED BY JACQUI NORTH

Breaking records as one of the most watched documentaries on Australian television, where it first aired on World AIDS Day 1999, Chrissy is an honest and daring film about an HIV-positive lesbian. Told by her best friend, filmmaker Jacqui North, it is perhaps the first documentary of its kind. The film offers a compassionate and poignant look into the world of Christy May Napier, a young street kid who faced the prospect of her death after contracting AIDS in her teens. Respectful and intelligent, Chrissy is not only an important and moving documentary, but also a true testament to this young woman and her strength. 1999, Australia, 52 minutes.
