Killer in the Village
This term’s film series, which looks at sex and its historical representation, ends with a film exploring the emergence of AIDS as an epidemic. Produced as part of the BBC’s long-running documentary series Horizon, the 1983 film ‘The Killer in the Village’ was one of the first documentaries to examine AIDS. Hannah J. Elizabeth (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine) will introduce the film and open discussion after, drawing on her PhD and ongoing research into the emotional history of public health and the portrayal of HIV in the media.
