The Bulungula Incubator NGO’s unorthodox method to bring health and hope to their far-flung HIV-ravaged community makes for an unexpected, off-beat and thought-provoking story. Making lovely use of sound and characterisation, Darren Taylor paints a vivid sound picture of African community life for an American audience that may have little insight into the beliefs and issues that influence HIV infection. While sensitive to the ethical dilemmas around testing and stigma, the story sets the tone for a robust approach to looking for innovative solutions to a seemingly insurmountable problem.
