Artists launch campaign as HIV doubles in Iran
Date created : Latest update :
In Iran, the number of people infected with HIV through unprotected sex has doubled over the past decade, according to the country's health ministry. To draw attention to the disease and raise awareness, a group of Iranian artists have launched "The Salam Project", a video in which celebrities and ordinary Iranians talk about the disease and encourage people to get tested. We speak to Emitis Soltani, the initiative's photographer.
But we begin with a glimpse into Banksy's latest project. And as always, debate is raging surrounding the elusive British artist's work. Some are even saying his newly opened hotel in the West Bank offers "the worst view in the world." Whether you love or hate it, it's a hotel, a museum and a protest all in one.
And finally, we focus on a new film about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, from his childhood to the pinnacle of his political power. "Reis", or "The Chief" in English, is screening at cinemas across the country, and it's been dubbed propaganda by critics. The launch comes just weeks before a referendum on a constitution that could expand Erdogan's powers.
