Sex Is...

Edition 1993
80' - 1993 - Documentary - Dialogue: English
Director: Marc Huestis Composer: Donna Viscuso, Pussy Tourette
Sex is ... explores the attitudes of a diverse group of gay men towards sex in the age of AIDS and HIV. The root of this project is deeply personal. One of the most important issues I face today, particularly within the context of HIV is the expression of physical and emotional intimacy. (... ) One only needs to see the statistica! reports on the rise of HIV infection, to realize that a a reality-based approach to sex education has not yet emerged. This is the primary 'raison d'etre' for my latest documentary. (Marc Huestis)
