MDGs on screen

According to this interesting little article from the Kaiser Network, the Rome Film Festival –which is happening right now — showed a collection of short films inspired by the Millennium Development Goals.

A collection of eight short films inspired by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals — which include targets to reduce the spread of diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria — premiered Thursday at the third annual Rome Film Festival, the AP/ reports. The film, called “8,” contains segments made by eight different directors that focus on themes such as poverty, hunger, child mortality, the environment and education. One of the segments features the life of an African man living with HIV (Falconi, AP/, 10/23).

My question: So, when does the DVD come out?
