UNDETECTABLE Launches

Yesterday marked the 33rd World Aids Day. And our new film, Undetectable, about HIV/AIDS launched.

Canada has the solution to end HIV infections and stop the world-wide AIDS epidemic. So why are people still dying of AIDS? The TELUS Original documentary Undetectable looks at the history, breaks down the roadblocks, and exposes the gatekeepers that have stopped the world from becoming HIV/AIDS free.

The film is free to watch on Facebook and YouTube. Please watch and share widely. The film is a call to action. AIDS is a pandemic we can defeatโ€”so let’s get it done!

Undetectable was produced by Snapshot Studios with the assistance of the Government of Alberta, Alberta Media Fund and Calgary Arts Development, in collaboration with the Calgary Gay History Project.

Undetectable

UNDETECTABLE has its Calgary premiere on Sunday, September 26th, 4PM at the Calgary International Film Festival (CIFF). UNDETECTABLE is a deep dive into the hysteria, misinformation, stigma and prejudice that has surrounded the HIV/AIDS epidemic since the early ’80s. Through the eyes of current front-line workers and tireless activists, the film exposes how early societal prejudice is directly linked to todayโ€™s rising infection rates.

This is the second collaboration between Calgary filmmaker Laura O’Grady and historian Kevin Allen, whose first project together GROSS INDECENCY: THE EVERETT KLIPPERT STORY was a CIFF award-winner in 2018.

UNDETECTABLE was featured earlier this month at the LGBT Toronto Film Festival where it won the audience award for best short film.

UNDETECTABLE is a TELUS Original documentary and was produced with the assistance of the Government of Alberta, the Alberta Media Fund and Calgary Arts Development, in collaboration with the Calgary Gay History Project.

Join us on Sunday for the premiere at Eau Claire cinema or watch it online at home!
