A still from Altered Lives.
Altered Lives consists of four short animated films about four women with HIV.
The shorts, funded by the MAC AIDS Fund, are the result of a project between Positive Women Inc, and artists Bronwen Gray and Alan Young.
Gray developed the women’s true-life stories into scripts, then worked with a team of graphic designers who interpreted each script as a visual animation.
The animators are Sue Lim (In the Blink of an Eye segment), Lisa Waldner (For the Love of Dance), Shea Melville (Red Tape), and Sue Lim and Olivia Moor (The Long Walk).
This work is presented in conjunction with the Thirty moving image exhibition.
