The Face of AIDS Film Archive consists of documentation of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, shot all over the world beginning in 1988 by Swedish filmmaker and journalist Staffan Hildebrand. In this article, the archive’s particular characteristic of process is discussed and examined through four different perspectives: first, as an ongoing documentation of HIV/AIDS in the contemporaneous moments when it was filmed; second, as a commission of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm; third, as the product of a director with a strong personal vision and authorial presence; and finally, as an expression of Hildebrand’s self-defined AIDS activism.
