"Attempted Murderer..." That's what one of the young women in the preview trailer below called William Brawner, the subject of the documentary 25 To Life - a young African American man who contracted HIV at just 18 months old, something which he and his immediate family kept a secret for some 25 Years - from his friends, extended family members, and lovers, many who Brawner had unprotected sex with.

25 to life

"Attempted Murderer..." That's what one of the young women in the preview trailer below called William Brawner, the subject of the documentary 25 To Life - a young African American man who contracted HIV at just 18 months old, something which he and his immediate family kept a secret for some 25 Years - from his friends, extended family members, and lovers, many who Brawner had unprotected sex with.

Finally, at 27 years old, William decided to publicly disclose his secret to the shock and anger of many friends, family, and past girlfriends.

The film, directed by Mike Brown, and produced by Yvonne M. Shirley, follows William Brawner as he confronts his promiscuous past, and tries to forge a new open honest life with his HIV negative wife.

Heavy...

The filmmakers tell me that they are trying to build awareness for the documentary and their fundraising campaign, which will all assist in completing the film.
