Film synopsis:

People living with HIV in Chile fear stigma so they conceal their condition and stay silent about their experiences with the illness that threatened their life. ´This is my Face´ challenges this taboo by using autobiographical photography and reflexive techniques through cinematic and ethnographic storytelling. What is revealed is an internal and hidden dialogue that evokes a lifeworld known to people who deal with an illness that radically change lives.

The maker of this film works alongside her collaborators to reveal how this journey unfolds on screen and challenge years of silence and misrepresentation.
