To Live Is Better Than to Die

Hao si bu ru lai huo zhe

Directed by Chen Weijun
China, 2003


Director Weijun Chen spent months in Wenlou, a small village in central China, where 60% of the villagers are infected with HIV. The virus was spread when villagers in the early 1990s sold their blood in order to make a little extra money.
