6000 A DAY examines how governments, NGO’s and key individuals failed to prevent the spread of the AIDS. This film dissects the key moments in the global response to the epidemic,
and in so doing, reveals an international rift that has caused untold numbers of deaths.
Key actors tell the story, including Eric Sawyer, founder of Act Up New York, Sandra Thurman, President Clinton’s AIDS advisor, Mathilde Krim, founder of AMFAR, Noerine Kaleeba, founder of TASO and a UNAIDS advisor, France’s Health Minister Bernard Kouchner, and Peter Piot, Director of UNAIDS.
Supported by archives and testimonies, 6000 A DAY reveals the tragic degree of indifference and ignorance with which HIV/AIDS epidemic has been dealt.

A Film by Philip Brooks


« Great in scope, and accomplishes the difficult feat of succinctly chronicling the worldwide reaction to… or rather the lack thereof, to the AIDS crisis since its discovery, and examines the social, political, and economic barriers that have obstructed a concerted worldwide public health response to the epidemic. Sound and video quality are both very good… An extremely well balanced investigation. »-AIDS Book Review Journal
