The final First Friday Film this semester comes from Africa. 

“State of Denial” is a compelling documentary that explores the progress and consequences of the AIDS epidemic in South Africa, one of the countries most affected by the virus.

The documentary “puts a human face on the millions affected by HIV/AIDS by introducing us to a cross-section of South Africans involved with the AIDS epidemic. It shows not only their fight against the disease, but also the greed of the drug cartels and the denial of their government."

Dr. Eustance Palmer, professor of English and rhetoric, will introduce the film at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2 in the Arts and Sciences Auditorium.
