will be screened November 16 in Washington, D.C.

Ending AIDS: The Search for a Vaccine, a documentary film about the quest for an effective HIV vaccine, will be screened on November 16 at the Kaiser Family Foundation's offices in Washington, D.C. Narrated by actor and AIDS activist Richard Gere, the documentary chronicles the complicated history of HIV vaccine research, including the initial optimism by biotech firms; signs from Nairobi, Kenya, that there are some groups who seem to have remained disease-free even after repeated exposure to the virus; and promising results by researchers working with the monkey equivalent of HIV. The screening is cohosted by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the AIDS Vaccine Advocacy Coalition, and the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative. Scheduled to attend the screening and make brief remarks are Margaret Johnston of NIAID, Mitchell Warren of AVAC, Peg Willingham of IAVI, Bill Jersey and Michael Schwarz of Ending AIDS, and Matt James of the Kaiser Family Foundation. The screening will be held at 4:30 p.m. at Kaiser's Barbara Jordan Conference Center, 1300 G St. NW. For more information call (202) 347-5270.
