KZNSA Gallery will present a screening and panel discussion of the film From Durban To Tomorrow on Thursday, (September 26) at 18h30. The doors open at 17h00 with R40 off meals before the screening.

Cape Town-based solar-powered mobile cinema organisation, Sunshine Cinema, are in KZN to preview the documentary, From Durban to Tomorrow, directed by Dylan Mohan Gray.

Framed by two international Aids conferences in Durban, South Africa in 2000 and 2016, five HIV activists from around the world talk about what the HIV/AIDS movement has achieved, and highlight what remains to be done to ensure quality healthcare for all.

From Durban To Tomorrow is set as the International Aids Conference - the largest health conference in the world - comes to Durban, South Africa again in 2016, after first taking place there in 2000.

The 2000 conference was a watershed, and led to huge breakthroughs in access to AIDS treatment globally. In the film, we visit five activists and learn about their work in South Africa, Guinea, Spain, Hungary, and India, to ensure access to treatment and quality health care for people who are most vulnerable and marginalized. We hear their hopes and visions for the future, their sense of what is possible, and their calls to a renewed commitment to the fight for universal health care.

The screenings reflecting on the heritage of HIV/AIDS activism will be free to the public and held this Heritage Month in September in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town with a host of diverse panelists. The documentary is 40 minutes long and will be followed by approximately 60 minutes of post-screening discussion with the facilitator Dr Gcina Mhlophe and panelists Larissa Klazinga, Simphiwe Gumede and Siyabonga Nzimande.

The KZNSA Gallery is situated at 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, in Durban. More information on 031 277 1705 or cell 082 220 0368 or visit
