A Closer Walk

** This Thursday, July 1 at 7:30 p.m. (TOMORROW!!!) at the Kentucky Theater, 214 E.Main, will be a free showing of Robert Bilheimer's "A Closer Walk," the first film to depict humankind's confrontation with the Global AIDS Pandemic. Shot over three years on four continents, the power of the film lies in the one-on-one connection it allows the viewer to make with people living with HIV and AIDS, their families, and the dedicated health care workers who attempt to treat them. AIDS is now the leading cause of death for adults under 60 years of age worldwide; approximately forty million adults and children have already been infected. Please come learn what you can do to join the fight against the worst public health crisis in history.
