CEDAR FALLS, Iowa --The next film in the University of Northern Iowa's 'Reel to Real' film series will be 'One + One,' to be shown from noon to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 15, in the Maucker Union, South Room. A discussion following the film will be facilitated by Mike Bobeldyk, program coordinator at Maucker Union.

According to Guy Sims, associate director of Maucker Union, the film is a documentary look at the lives of two couples -- one straight, one gay. The film gives insights to how sero-discordant couples (mixed HIV-status) cope with the difficult task of negotiating death and love on a daily basis, and the deep bond they share.

The year-long Reel to Real film series presents short films to provide a forum for reflection, discussion, challenge and criticism. The event is free and open to the public. For more information contact Guy Sims at (319) 273-2683.
