More recently she produced the historical documentary, "Positively False" and, most relevant to tonight's discussion, "Positive Hell", the story of former heroin addicts in Northern Spain who have been living with an HIV diagnosis for almost 30 years, almost entirely without drugs and with the exception of one person in the documentary, in health. Joan is also the author of "Positively False". She heads the Immunity Resource Foundation in the UK which has a fantastic collection of archival AIDS documentary footage.

We will be hearing from his documentary film ”War by Other Means” which takes a hard look at the failures of the World Bank, such as the bank’s corrupt Structural Adjustment programs, and in particular in the Philippines, where 44% of the country’s national budget has gone towards paying foreign debt off alone. The devastation the World Bank has contributed to in developing nations such as Philippines provides a compassionate case for debt cancellation for at least the most indebted nations to western corporation interests and supported by the World Bank and IMF.
