In every city, there’s another city that visitors rarely see. But this other city isn’t just anywhere—it’s in Washington, D.C. The very city that is home to the capitol of the most powerful country in the world has an HIV/AIDS rate that is not only the nation’s highest, but rivals some African countries. This film introduces us to the people who live in the shadow of the Capitol but remain almost invisible to the lawmakers and lobbyists who live there. It’s about politics and ideology, corruption and bureaucracy, and an epidemic that grew out of control while few people paid any attention or cared.

Oscar Potentials Get Hold of Per Theater Chart

September 21st, 2010

There were just two films to reach the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart, but one of them, Never Let Me Go, was pegged as a potential Awards Season player. With an opening average of $27,934, it should expand and that can only help. (The first challenge in earning awards is being seen by enough voters.)
