xnentary film that has been
viewed around Israel is
coming to the Detroit Film
Theatre. Love and. Diane, which
tells the story of an impoverished
New York family fighting drug
addiction and HIV, will be shown
"I think this film has had so
much attention in Israel because
the people there are really seeing
poverty for the first time," says
filmmaker Jennifer Dworkin, who
introduced this as her first work at
the Jerusalem Film Festival. "I also

Hinson, who is FIIV-positive. The
two are coping with the birth of
Hinson's son, Donyeah, also HIV-
positive, and the rigors of the
social services system.
Since the movie was made,
Dworkin has become closer to her
subjects. Besides traveling with
them to speaking engagements,
she has kept Donyeah in her
apartment while his mother
received medical treatment.
Dworkin, on her way to a doc-
toral degree in philosophy before
entering the world of cinema, is
working on a new film project, a
series on the essence of great
"I have sold the television rights
to Love and Diane," Dworkin says.
