Vertical /Horizontal is an application-documentary (app-doc) about HIV realities and experiences. Since the appearance of high efficiency antiviral treatments in 1996, HIV can be treated as a non-mortal chronic infection. However, the HIV-related stigma remained. Now, up to 25 interviewees explain unashamedly their firsthand experiences with HIV. Through Q&A, the user navigates across an audiovisual experience: participants choose from a list of questions. The answers are short video capsules of people who has links to HIV, one way or another. The app-doc generates a unique narrative experience which evolves depending on which HIV-related topic the user has shown interest about.
