Ruins: Chronicle of an HIV Witch-hunt

(53 min, Zoe Mavroudi, Greece, 2013)

Director Zoe Mavroudi’s powerful exposition of how HIV stigma was cynically used to scapegoat society’s most vulnerable. The film explores what happened in the run-up to the country’s 2012 national elections when a group of HIV-positive women were detained by the Greek police, forcibly tested, charged with a felony, imprisoned and publicly exposed, when their mug shots and personal data were published in the media.
