HBO skeds ‘Pandemic,’ ‘Persona’

AIDS, Israeli-Palestinian conflict explored in docus

Oliver Stone and Rory Kennedy will showcase their docus “Persona Non Grata” and “Pandemic: Facing Aids,” respectively, this June on HBO.

Stone’s “Persona,” filmed in March of 2002 on location in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Ramallah, interviews former Prime Ministers Shimon Peres, Ehud Barak and Benjamin Netanyahu as well as Hamas spokesperson Hasan Josef to present the multi-faceted Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Pic, which documents a suicide bomber and the daily violence in the Middle East, will bow June 5 on HBO, with repeats throughout the month.

“Persona Non Grata” was produced by The Wild Bunch, Rule 8 Prods, Morena Films and Stone’s Ixtlan Corp.

In “Pandemic: Facing AIDS,” Kennedy directs a five-part docu in 30-minute segments that introduce five different global issues centered around the effects of living with AIDS. The titles of the five segments — “Thailand,” “Uganda,” “Russia,” “Brazil” and “India” — were drawn from the source countries of the stories.

HBO bows “Pandemic” on June 15 with two of the five installments, “Thailand” and “Uganda” with “Russia,” “Brazil,” and “India” to air June 22, June 29, and July 6, respectively.

“Pandemic: Facing AIDS” is the centerpiece of a campaign by Moxie Firecracker Films and Umbrage Editions to raise awareness of the global AIDS crisis through media and cultural outlets.
