"A Tale of Two Teens"
A Tale of Two Teens is an engaging and informative documentary about the AIDS pandemic in Africa as seen through the eyes of two young girls, an American and South African teenager, featuring the music of the Dave Matthews Band and U2. Through the girls’ friendship, the film explores how AIDS has been able to ravage an entire continent, while a dangerous complacency has developed in America. It looks at the disparities in the girls’ lives, from access to education and health care to their thoughts on boys, sex, and HIV/AIDS. Infused with a resilient spirit, A Tale of Two Teens offers an accessible and meaningful appreciation of the global AIDS crisis as well as a powerful tool for discussion, awareness and prevention.

Seryozha follows the life of one orphan and through him tells the larger story of “street kids” exposed to drugs, sex and illnesses including HIV/AIDS.
