On the edge - six stories of AIDS in Ukraine

Berlin director tells story of AIDS in Ukraine

6 December: "On the edge - six stories of AIDS in Ukraine" opens in Charlottenburg at 8 pm

Berlin-based filmmaker Karsten Hein's new documentary about AIDS in eastern Ukraine premieres Wednesday in Charlottenburg. "On the edge - six stories of AIDS in Ukraine," in German and Russian with German subtitles, aims to raise awareness of the awful state of things in this part of the country, whose residents are plagued by AIDS and tuberculosis because of needle sharing and prostitution. This was the filmmaker's second trip to the region - his first film, "We don't want to die like this" (So wollen wir nicht sterben) - focused on AIDS in Odessa. Tickets cost Euro 7.50.
