HIV Lifecycle


A Virus Walks Into A Bar

A Virus Walks Into A Bar is Walter’s most ambitious film to date. It narrates the life cycle of an HIV as if it were set somewhere between Coronation Street and Twin Peaks. The characters include an anthropomorphized capsid, along with other key proteins, co-factors and the targeted cell nucleus, depicted by the barmaid surrounded by regulars (the cytoplasm). The high definition video image contrasts with the handmade quality of the costumes, all produced by Walter, who also wrote, directed, co-edited and designed the sound for the film.
