Glenn Close and
Will Smith narrate AIDS documentary for PBS

A Closer Walk, the critically acclaimed documentary narrated by Glenn Close and Will Smith, will make its U.S. television debut on PBS on August 31 at 9 p.m. Eastern time. The documentary was filmed on four continents over a period of three years and depicts the realities of AIDS worldwide, exploring the relationship between health, dignity, and human rights.

A Closer Walk features cinematography by Richard D. Young, interviews with the Dalai Lama, Bono, and Kofi Annan, and musical contributions by Annie Lennox, the Neville Brothers, Eric Clapton, and Sade.

"This is a story about the way the world is," Close states in the opening line of the film's narration. A Closer Walk takes the viewer to locations in the United States, Ukraine, Uganda, South Africa, India, and Haiti and offers personal stories of children, women, and men around the world who are affected by the disease. Those caring or advocating for people living with AIDS are featured prominently in the film as well. They include Paul Farmer of Partners In Health, India's Suniti Solomon, and Jeffrey Sachs of the Earth Institute at Columbia University. (The Advocate)
