Join the Salon
for a matinee screening of the provocative film
The 24th Day
The film is based on a play of the same name, written by Tony Piccirillo, who also directed the film.
After learning that he is HIV-positive, Tom lures Dan into his apartment in an effort to figure out if he contracted the disease during their first tryst. Forcing Dan to take a blood test, Tom announces that he will kill him if he is also infected. As the pair faces off in a dangerous confrontation, issues of morality, honest, responsibility,sexual risk, sexual identity, HIV status, accurate status disclosure, infidelity, intoxication and testing are explored.
Here is the trailer, prefaced with a comment from Jsani Henry, who many of you know and who has seen the film: "The movie isn't nearly as violent or as action packed as the trailer makes it out to be. Most of it is dialogue...and it's really engaging."
