One of Pili’s key personnel is global health ex­pert So­phie Har­man, an ac­tivist who used her grant money to com­mis­sion di­rec­tor Leanne Wel­ham to tell the story of Tan­za­nia’s HIV cri­sis. Util­is­ing a pri­mar­ily non-pro­fes­sional cast, this so­cial-re­al­ist drama about one woman’s strug­gle is pow­er­ful stuff. True, its mes­sage-driven fo­cus risks tip­ping into wor­thi­ness, but Pili re­mains a su­pe­rior aware­ness-raiser. Paul Bradshaw
