Their Story, Your Choice - Della & Otis


Della & Otis

What would you sacrifice for a relationship? Della was born with HIV and has been open about her status with her boyfriend Otis. She gets the opportunity to study abroad. Dealing with themes such as abuse, disclosure, having children, and living with HIV, this interactive film lets the viewer make choices for Della and Otis at this crucial moment to see whether their relationship can survive or not.

Della & Otis is the third in a series of interactive short films called Their Story, Your Choice made by the UK’s largest HIV and sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust. By using film and viewer participation, the films pioneer a new way of tackling HIV stigma and encouraging HIV testing in black African communities who are disproportionately affected by HIV in the UK.

The stories were developed from the experiences of people living with HIV by Terrence Higgins Trust and Brown Boy Productions with HIV activist Bakita Kasadha consulting. They were funded by Comic Relief and the MAC AIDS Fund.
