Fast Trip, Long Drop

Event: Fast Trip, Long Drop
Narrative Medicine: A Films & Comix Series

Introduced by Gregg Bordowitz

Videomaker/activist Gregg Bordowitz introduces this pair of landmark autobiographical documentaries that chronicle the AIDS epidemic through personal insights and astute observations.

In Fast Trip, Bordowitz sets out to examine the cultural climate surrounding three major life events: testing positive for HIV antibodies (in spring 1988), coming out to his parents, and getting sober. But when, during filming, a close friend is diagnosed with breast cancer and his grandparents are killed in a car accident, Bordowitz finds himself questioning his sense of identity, the way he understands his diagnosis, and the relationship between illness and history. (54 mins., video) Habit, a loose follow-up to Fast Trip, features autobiographical segments and an exploration of South Africa’s AIDS crisis through interviews with people affected by the epidemic. (53 mins., video)
