Filmmaker Robert Bilheimer '66 was featured in a Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
article about his new film, A Closer Walk
, a documentary about AIDS (www.acloserwalk.org). According to the article, "The Bristol Hills filmmaker and his small crew traveled from the ramshackle huts of Uganda to the dusty byways of India to the frigid and forgotten ghettos
of the former Soviet Union to the mean streets of Kansas City. They talked to some 75 people - dying children, dedicated doctors and famous leaders, including U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, rock star-activist Bono
and the Dalai Lama. And they enlisted Oscar-nominated actors Glenn Close and Will Smith to narrate."
