David is Dying
Director: Stephen Lloyd jackson
U.S.A., 2010, 80 min, color
Language: English

A young, successful hedge fund manager, David Brown, has just been told that he is HIV positive. He is informed of the possibility that his unborn child could also be infected and so too the child’s mother, his long-term fiancée, Carla. Through an intense therapy session with his psychiatrist, David takes us on a pernicious journey that starts twelve months prior – the
women, the sex and the demons.

David takes us even deeper into his troubled and disturbed life. Through the candid exchange with his psychiatrist, Amelia Holland.

David knows that he will die. He must live with that. However, he must also resolve the ghosts of the past before he can face his end. ‘ DavidIs Dying’ is a dark, disturbing psychodrama, which illustrates the ugly side of love and tragic passion.

All screenings are followed by lively discussions moderated by program director Floyd Webb or local scholars, screenwriters and directors.
