Under the auspices of Mirabai Films and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the AIDS Jaago Project presents four short dramatic films by cutting-edge Indian directors that aim to dismantle myths and misconceptions about HIV/AIDS. Each film uses top Indian movie stars to maximize the exposure of the films to audiences throughout India.

Mira Nair’s Migration deals with the AIDS Virus as the great class leveller in society by following its transmission through interweaving stories linking urban and rural India. Blood Brothers, directed by award-winning new wave director Vishal Bhardwaj- stars Siddhartha as a young man who gets a positive HIV diagnosis and henceforth allows his life to fall apart. Prarambha- The Beginning, directed by renowned cinematographer and director Santosh Sivan, features South Indian superstar Prabhudeva as a truck driver who discovers a young boy stowed away in his vehicle. Sivan explores the question of how society deals with those who are infected. Positive directed by Farhan Akhtar, one of Mumbai’s most prominent young filmmakers, follows the story of a young boy and his parents and how they cope with the devastation that AIDS can visit on the family.

    These are 4 diff. short films made for HIV/AIDs education in India. They’re all made by big directors and with big actors so that more people would watch and become aware of the virus. HIV/AIDs is spreading rapidly in India…this is a trailer that combines all 4 films…they are all amazing! All 4 are a MUST WATCH!
