A new drama / documentary film drama about a young heterosexual man living with HIV.

We have been trying to get this film made for the last two years - Having failed to get major funding, we have decided to shoot it anyway. We are looking for volunteers who would like to get involved on the production in any way they feel they could contribute. We need indivuduals to work in front and behind the camera, actors, camera operators and so on to work along side a small team who have been comitted to the project for some time. Some of those working on the project are positive themselves and we would welcome more people from that community to become involved in complete confidence. We hope to shoot the film in London and LA, with the majority of the story taking place in LA in a three week shoot within the next 12 months. Acting roles cover all ages and races. American actors Sherri Howard and Keith Gordon are already comitted to the project, along with UK actors Danny Webb and Jason Flemygn.

Jericho, a young single heterosexual man in his twenties, living a very normal life between London and Los Angeles, discovers he is HIV positive. The film begins on the day he is diagnosed with the virus and continues with the ramifications that immediately follow. Who in his circle of friends does he tell? Where did he get it? Has he put anyone else at risk and if so when and how should he tell them and what are the long term implications on Jericho’s life? The film follows Jericho’s life for a period of approximately three years, showing the consequences of the virus on his life. and those around him.

Despite campaigns for public awareness someone in the UK is being diagnosed with HIV every ninety minutes and in the Africa the rates are far more frightening. It is estimated by the year 2020 that one third of the entire population of the African continent will be HIV positive. The Jericho project is our contribution to the on going battle against AIDS and education of issues relating to HIV.

We would be interested in hearing from anyone who would like to be involved, there will also be a Q and A session about the project held in LOS ANGELES in June. Please contact us if you would like to attend, there will be a second one in London in July. Actors that are interested should also attach their cv and photographs.

Please email marked JERICHO, co and we will also try and answer all questions as soon as we can.

Our thanks.

Sharon Sorrentino, Lance Nielsen
