WILHEMINA'S WAR
Directed by JUNE CROSS, Emmy-Winning Filmmaker & Professor at Columbia

Each year in the United States, 50000 People are Diagnosed with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Nearly half of them live in the south, where the epidemic has taken root in rural communities like Williston, South Carolina. Through the story or Wilhemina Dixon, a one-woman army fighting for her family's survival, Wilhemina's War shows the devastating toll of the scourge of HIV/AIDS, one of the leading causes of death for black women in the rural south. Shot of the course of five years, the film bears witness to the resilience and determination of the human spirit in the face of tremendous adversity.
