About the film
‘Zero Patience’ is a 1993 Musical film directed by John Greyson. The Victorian explorer, Sir Richard Burton with the help of the ghost of Zero, attempts to de-bunk the myth that the introduction of HIV was the result of one person, Patient ‘Zero’. Lauded for its “Loopy buoyancy”, this musical film offers “a sassy commentary on the epidemic of blame”, leaving the audience laughing. Screening on the first day of LGBT History month, come with an open mind, and enjoy an audio and visual feast.
