AND I DO SURVIVE (AIDS)
This feature cinema vérité documentary chronicles Trinidadian lesbian Michelle Lopez as she pursues the American Dream in a country that denies her citizenship because she is HIV+ immigrant. Her AIDS activism entails trying to reverse this discriminatory law & other practices that infringe on the quality of life for HIV+ people. As the gay marriage lightning rod strikes the nation, Michelle’s own relationship mirrors the divide within the LGBT community and she must decide whether to tie the knot with her girlfriend of 7 years. Michelle increasingly devotes herself to AIDS activism & her children (one is also HIV+) become teenagers who seek greater independence and she balances being a responsible single parent
while remembering her own turbulent coming of age. Determined to leave the Bronx and make Brooklyn her home so that she’s closer to her church & work, Michelle juggles an eviction and other housing issues so that she & her children have a better quality of life.

ABOUT THE FILMMAKER
Director/producer Hima B. is a queer South Asian who makes documentaries, narratives, & experimental videos that explore the intersections of race, immigration, gender, sexual orientation, labor, & economics, especially as they impact queer women. Her previous LGBT documentaries profiled sex workers, Asian/Pacific Islanders, & those impacted by domestic violence.
And I Do Survive is a notable creative departure from her past work as she uses cinema vérité (capturing events as they happen in real time), interviews, & archival media, to create an intimate non-fictional portrait that delves deeply into her protagonists’ experiences.
