‘Born positive’ is a documentary about three young Londoners who were born with HIV. Due to the stigma they have to face, their stories were filmed with actors miming to their real voices. They all share this secret, which was hidden to them while they were children and, once they find it out, they had to hide it from the others. Blame, anger or ignorance are just some of the feelings that they deal with having got such an unpopular STD through their mums.
