Canada has the solution to end HIV infections and stop the world-wide AIDS epidemic. So why are people still dying of AIDS? This video uses archival footage to review the history of AIDS, breaks down the roadblocks to eliminating this plague, and exposes the gatekeepers that have stopped the world from becoming HIV/AIDS free. The documentary is a deep dive into the hysteria, misinformation, stigma, and prejudice that has surrounded the HIV virus since it was identified in the early 80s. Through the eyes of artist Mark Randall, current front-line workers and tireless activists, Undetectable exposes how early societal prejudice is directly linked to today’s rising infection rates.
