It’s Not Over, a feature length documentary film made possible by the M∙A∙C AIDS Fund, the charitable arm of M∙A∙C Cosmetics, offers a global audience an inspiring look at how young people today are facing the challenges of HIV/AIDS. Viewed from the perspective of renowned filmmaker Andrew Jenks, It’s Not Over tells the story of three young people from different parts of the world who are living with or affected by HIV/AIDS in vastly different, yet astonishingly inter-connected ways. Jenks visits India, South Africa and the United States to experience the epidemic first hand.

Often time we stigmatize those with a deadly disease before we even consider what they must be going through or the circumstances surrounding their situation. In the documentary, one young lady was born with HIV, one contracted it from a partner and the last lives in a village where more than half the community has HIV. It will be interesting to listen to their stories and gather but a glimpse into their lives. MAC Cosmetics is definitely giving back to the community and that makes me feel good about doing business with them.
Starting November 19th, the film will be available on streaming movie platforms – Netflix and SnagFilms – and on Pivot TV for audiences in the United States. The film launches worldwide on World AIDS Day, December 1st. The M∙A∙C AIDS Fund, the heart and soul of M∙A∙C Cosmetics, was established in 1994 to support men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS globally. MAF is a pioneer in HIV/AIDS funding, providing financial support to organizations working with underserved regions and populations. To date, the M·A·C AIDS Fund has raised more than $340 million USD through the sales of Viva Glam products.
