The AIDS pandemic seen through the eyes of an American and South African girl.
A Tale of Two Teens is about the AIDS holocaust, as seen through the eyes of an American teenager visiting an orphaned South African teenager living in the epicenter of the pandemic. It is a journey of discovery both for the two teens as well as the audience.
This documentary looks at how girls represent the new face of AIDS and how young people in South Africa are not speaking, but singing out about the disease killing their parents, teachers, neighbors, workers and friends. A Tale of Two Teens features the music of the resilient teenagers of the KwaZulu Natal Province as well as the Dave Matthews Band — a favorite of both the South African and the American girl.
A Tale of Two Teens is 36 minutes, six segments, a documentary, a music video but finally, teenagers praise this program as a reality show about an urgent and horrifying reality.
"A Tale of Two Teens is an engaging and informative documentary about the AIDS pandemic in Africa as seen through the eyes of an American teen and a South African teenager who has been orphaned by AIDS; featuring the music of the Dave Matthews Band and U2."
