A Closer Walk was the first film to exhaustively document the global HIV/AIDS epidemic and the impact it has had around the world.

A Closer Walk is the first film to depict humankind's confrontation with the global AIDS epidemic. Subjects and story lines encompass the broad spectrum of the global AIDS experience and include people with HIV/AIDS from all walks of life; AIDS children and orphans and those caring for them; doctors, nurses, and social workers; human rights advocates; and prominent scientists, economists, researchers, government leaders, and NGO officials. The film's basic themes remain, what are the underlying causes of AIDS; the relationship between health, dignity, and human rights; and the universal need for action, compassion, and commitment to counter the disease.
