The Blood of Yingzhou District won the 2007 Academy Award for best short-subject documentary and catapulted China’s struggle to deal with AIDS onto global headlines. This heart-breaking, riveting documentary explores how traditional Chinese obligations of family and village collide with the terror of infection and how these forces play out in the lives of children in the remote villages of Anhui. — COREY TONG
