On the World Day for the Fight against HIV / AIDS, we are considering the fictions of film and television that with their stories violated the taboos and stereotypes of the subject.
During the World Summit of Health Ministers of 1988, it was announced on December 1 as an initiative to raise awareness of the virus that affects millions of people.
One way to educate is through pop culture.
Fiction whose stories about HIV / AIDS are a living document about the history of one of the most sensible epidemics of modern medicine. Of course, over the years, movies and television have developed in the way they treat the subject.
One of the films considered to be pioneers is Rana Frost on John Erman, which NBC premiered in November 1985 after 2 years of precision production in order to "not harm susceptibility". It was a great social contribution to the times as they showed the true ways of conveying, destroying myths unfounded by the great ignorance that was by means of transmitting simply touching an infected person or legends of mass transmissions in public places.
At the moment, valuable contributions continue to be made.
Elite, a series of Netflix premiering in 2018, tells the story of a group of students from a prestigious school. The protagonist plot is for Marina, a 16-year-old HIV-positive girl.
Critics and the public applauded the way the subject was treated.
The director of Elite, Ramon Salazar, revealed in an interview with Esquire SpainHe said: "When I read the script, one of the main reasons I accepted the project was because the topic of HIV was included in the series: In which character, with which focus."
