Documentary Sheds Light on Hidden HIV/AIDS Epidemic in American South
July 11, 2013
Director Lisa Biagiotti created the documentary deepsouth to examine why the HIV epidemic has grown more rapidly in the U.S. South than other regions of the country. According to Biagiotti, more than half of all new HIV infections occurred in the South, which comprises only 37 percent of the U.S. population. Biagiotti stated that she used HIV as a global positioning system to identify the "most fragile parts" of the country.
