When it premiered, Peter Adair's now critically-acclaimed documentary ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE became the first film to humanize the face of AIDS. HIV-positive himself, Adair chose eleven individuals from a cast of 125. The subjects range in age from 17 to 60, coming from a wide variety of races, backgrounds, and lifestyles to share their experiences with AIDS in front of the camera.
