Synopsis

A catchy, upbeat, musical look at the media-induced paranoia about AIDS, first made as a video wall in a Toronto suburban shopping mall. "This is not a Death in Venice...". Aschenbach, once a "liberal fellow," sucumbs to an attack of ADS (Acquired Dread of Sex) while Tadzio learns that Safe Sex is Fun and various other characters warn us that ADS can happen to anybody.
