A Documentary on Children and HIV/AIDS in Russia
“Seryozha” is a documentary film about orphans living on the streets of St. Petersburg, Russia, some of whom are HIV-positive or have lost parents to AIDS. Filmmaker Denis Kuzmin follows the life of one orphan and through him tells the larger story of “street kids” exposed to drugs, sex and illnesses, including HIV/AIDS.

Kuzmin received financial support through a fellowship program created by the Kaiser Family Foundation and Transatlantic Partners Against AIDS (TPAA) to produce this 27-minute documentary. The film, with English-language subtitles, may be viewed online.
