'The Carrier' portrays one family's life in a Zambian village ravaged by AIDS.

Mar. 06, 2012

Five months after the CIA killed American-born cleric and Al Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke at Northwestern University yesterday about how the U.S. can legally kill American citizens on foreign soil. Worldview contributor Doug Cassel from Notre Dame Law School analyzes Holder’s remarks. Also, 28-year-old Mutinta Mweemba thought her dreams of marriage, children and a good life came true when she fell in love, but her new husband came with two other wives. At the same time, Mutinta's remote Zambian village was being ravaged by AIDS.  The documentary film The Carrier highlights a community's desperate struggle to emancipate its next generation from HIV/AIDS.  Worldview talks with the film's director, Maggie Betts.
