« Go back
This film, set in Romania in 1994, is a personal documentary by an Irish humanitarian aid worker, who spent three months working in a hospital for children who were diagnosed as HIV Positive.

During the eighties the Romanian leader Ceaucescu, began a policy of mandatory blood transfusions in hospitals and orphanages. Small doses were injected into thousands of children as a food substitute. The ultimate tragedy was that the blood had been bought on the black market, and much of it was infected with the HIV virus.

This film is entirely made up of photographic stills depicting daily life in the hospital, where dying children are very regrettably a common sight. Tu Crazy briefly chronicles the lives of some of these courageous children, both the happy moments and the sad ones, and attempts to give them an identity they would not otherwise have achieved.
