►Chocolate Babies: A scathingly funny and tender satire about an underground band of HIV-positive, queer, urban, trans, activists of color. In an effort to expose political corruption surrounding the AIDS epidemic, these urban guerrillas stage a series of street attacks against conservative politicians whom they believe are collecting secret lists of HIV-positive folk. Caught up in their activism and drug and alcohol use, the group becomes torn by infighting and begins to lose sight of their mission and loyalties to each other. Will they find the peace and justice they seek? Using performance art as direct action the film inspires reflection on activist decision-making and community-making. The indie film draws attention to AIDS activism past and the continued political and legal struggles of today. Sure to provoke dialogue.
