ENDGAME Documentary Trailer
If black America were a country, it would have the 16th highest rate of HIV in the world.  In parts of Washington DC, infection rates are higher than Rwanda, Kenya, Ethiopia and the Congo.  While over the last decade HIV infections have declined more than 20% worldwide, in the US rates have stayed the same and soared among young black men and women.
ENDGAME uncovers the hidden story of how this crisis developed.  It is a groundbreaking film, three years in the making, that tells the dramatic truth of how prejudice, silence and stigma allowed HIV to spread deep into the black community. Producer/director Renata Simone’s 2-hour film elegantly tells this narrative through a series of stunning people, in intimate interviews layered against the backdrop of culture, politics and social inequities that allowed the virus to spread over the past 30 years
“The film is as much about race in America as it is about HIV, how a virus has exploited our inability to deal with our problems around race,” says filmmaker Renata Simone. “In part I hoped to show how the big, abstract social issues come to rest on people every day, in the limited life choices they face. The story of HIV in black America is about the private consequences of the politics of race.”
