Olivia & Tim – Very Much Alive




Olivia Breitha was diagnosed with Hansen’s Disease in 1934 and was exiled to Molokai leprosy settlement at Kapuapapa. In the early 90s Tim Baker lived in a different kind of isolation in Honolula as he went through round after round of dire illness brought by AIDS. This is a documentary about their friendship, and the strength of the human spirit in the face of stigmatizing disease.

Directed by Christopher Ley and Carl Vandervoort. 50 minutes.
