The Fan Free Clinic is hosting a special screening of “The Other City” on Sunday, April 3 at the Byrd Theatre. The gritty documentary explores the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Washington, D.C.
From the film: In every city, there’s another city that visitors rarely see. But this other city isn’t just anywhere—it’s in Washington, D.C. The very city that is home to the capitol of the most powerful country in the world has an HIV/AIDS rate that is not only the nation’s highest, but rivals some African countries…
Following the movie, three community leaders will share what the local response has been to HIV/AIDS. Fan Free Clinic executive director Karen Legato will wrap the event.
The screening is cosponsored by the VCU School of Social Work and is free and open to the public by registering here.
