"Recommended. An effective public service message about the horrors of the disease and toll it is taking on an already marginalized population." - Linda Frederikson, WSU, Vancouver, WA, Educational Media Reviews Online
"SEEN, BUT NOT HEARD addresses some of the political aspects of being ill. This documentary unfolds through statements by activists from groups like Harlem United, Brooklyn Lives, and the Latino Commission on AIDS; by women living with AIDS; and by descriptive facts, like of the one million Americans living with AIDS, half are black women. The central message is that with the popular, but quiescent, move of HIV infection from death sentence to chronic condition in wider political activist circles, the ravages of the illness for black women have been pushed aside, marginalized, and silenced. Now is the time to act and bring the medical into the political." - Pamela Moss, Films for the Feminist Classroom
