Powerful Irish documentary about HIV set to debut on Netflix

Award winning Irish feature documentary film, How To Tell A Secret, will land on Netflix on December 1st.

The powerful documentary will join the streaming service on World AIDS day.

As the film focuses on people living in Ireland with HIV it’s a fitting release date.

Directors Anna Rodgers and Shaun Dunne find creative ways to tell the stories of people in Ireland living with HIV, while shining a light on the transformative power of sharing your story.

The film has had a worldwide tour of over 35 film festivals including San Francisco, Tokyo, Sydney and Milan.

It won Best Documentary Film at the London Irish Film Festival and Best Documentary at the LGBT+ Film Festival Poland in 2023. It was also nominated for two IFTAS (Best Documentary and Best Cinematography).

Responding to the news that Netflix is picking up their feature documentary, one of the Directors Anna Rodgers stated: “This is such a brilliant opportunity to share our film with a wider audience and dispel any lingering misinformation about living with HIV.

“We know from our screenings around the world that the stories in this film really touch a chord with people, and we hope that it goes on to bust shame and stigma in all the households who get to watch it now thanks to Netflix making it more widely available.”
