Her film, ‘Sharpening Our Oyster Knives: Living with HIV/AIDS Today’ will premiere at the ‘Health Disparities in Black Communities’ panel at 3:15 p.m. Saturday at the John D. O’Bryant African-American Institute (AAI). Her film examines the issues around the tight grasp HIV/AIDS has on communities of color in Boston, including socioeconomic factors, programmatic approaches, funding and government policy, while highlighting some personal journeys of people infected and affected by the disease locally, she said. ‘I think it sheds light on the fact that we tend to think of HIV and AIDS as somewhere else,’ Redman said. ‘Most people don’t realize that it is right in our backyards, in our communities.’ Redman completed a directed study during her final semester at Northeastern, which allowed her to focus on her film while still earning credits.
