Esta es Mi Cara
(This is My Face)
In Chile, people living with HIV fear stigma, and often conceal their condition and remain silent about what they are going through. This is My Face explores what happens when a range of men living with the virus open up about the illness that changed their life trajectories. It follows a creative process whereby they produce photographic portraits that represent their memories and feelings, a process which helps them challenge years of silence, shame, and misrepresentation.
A lesson in the power of collaborative storytelling.
