Ruins: Chronicle of an HIV Witch-Hunt (directed by Zoe Mavroudi) focuses on the case of a group of 31 HIV-positive women who were detained by the police a few days before the May 2012 general election in Greece and force-tested for HIV; those who diagnosed positive were publicly exposed on television and accused of illegal prostitution and seeking to spread the virus intentionally.
The personal accounts in the documentary tell the story of these women who were abused and manipulated by the Greek State, an act which reflects a deficit of empathy for those hardest hit by austerity.
