Mickey Grant, a filmmaker from Dallas, Texas, has, in response to the blog campaign, today made his full, 1h 22 min, 2003 documentary on the Libya HIV case, Infection, available free, on Google Video — link here — it’s a raw upload, so for the moment you have to endure a 30 second test pattern before the film actually starts. I mentioned this in my earlier post, but I think his initiative deserves a post of its own.
It’s the first time Mickey has put one of his films on the Internet for free, as he has to make a living from his documentaries. “I made a decision to put it on for free, with the hope that it might get some immediate attention and possibly bring some light on the horrible plight of the nurses,” says Grant.
If anyone has any comments after watching the documentary, feel free to share them in Comments to this post.
