A Matter of Life and Death

A Matter of Life and Death

Echoing the title of a definitive film in British cinema, A Matter of Life and Death captures an equally definitive reality of British society in the nineties: the scourge of AIDS that cost thousands of people their lives. What’s it like to live and die of a “big illness with a small name”?
