Positive Story

Directed by: Ran Kotzer
47 Minutes, 1996

Avi grew up in Givatayim where he had a typical Israeli childhood, for someone gay: social ostracism, scorn, loneliness and a double-life. At 17, he added nof (Hebrew for panorama) to his name and discovered gay society in the big city. At 19, he tested positive for HIV. At 26, Avinof became an active and vocal member of Israel’s gay community. Positive Story is an intimate and personal film in which one man shares his story of being gay, HIV positive, and Israeli.
