Additional Information

'Zero Patience' (1993). Directed by John Greyson. John Greyson’s genre-bending feature explores/explodes the myth of the introduction of HIV to North America by one individual, dubbed “Patient Zero.” Greyson treats this notion with fanciful invention, positing a sinister plot to demonize a historic victim, and dressing up the scenario with outrageously staged musical numbers, effectively tempering rage with defiant humor and offering one restorative myth in place of another.

Preceded by: 'The Attendant' (1993). Directed by Isaac Julien. Fantasies of domination and submission are enacted by an art museum patron and a uniformed guard, prompted by a classical depiction of white slavers oppressing African slaves.
