Film – The Killer in the Village (1983)
This term’s film series ends with a film exploring the emergence of AIDS as an epidemic. Produced as part of the BBC’s long-running documentary series Horizon, the 1983 film ‘The Killer in the Village’ was one of the first documentaries to examine AIDS. Hannah J. Elizabeth (Centre for History in Public Health, LSHTM) will introduce the film, drawing on her PhD and ongoing research into the emotional history of public health and the portrayal of HIV in the media.
