Ashley Judd Talks About Trip to India for Documentary on HIV
November 5, 2007
In an interview broadcast Sunday on ABC's "This Week" program, actress Ashley Judd discussed her new documentary "India's Hidden Plague," which deals with the AIDS epidemic in the Asian nation. "It's very real, and it's real stories and real heartache and also real opportunity to focus on a solution that is very cost-effective and has an extraordinarily meaningful impact in the lives of young people," said Judd, who added that a person can become educated about HIV and protected against the virus for $10 for a whole year. Judd had previously traveled to Central America with fellow actress Selma Hayek for the documentary "Confronting the Pandemic." Her new film will premiere on the National Geographic Channel on Nov. 30.
