Becoming Beautiful - Saving a Generation

Over two years, documentary photographer and filmmaker Leonie Marinovich followed 22 year old Tselane, an HIV positive woman living in a remote, mountainous area of Lesotho. Through a visually gripping blend of text, still photos and moving images, Marinovich shows the complexities of a woman’s journey as she discovers she is pregnant and HIV positive, and the decisions she has to make along the way.
