  • Plot Summary: Experimental Canadian director John Greyson helms ZERO PATIENCE, a combination of musical, docudrama, and fantasy that explores issues in gay and HIV politics. Sir Richard Burton, the Victorian adventurer and scholar, has survived to the modern day due to his secret discovery of the fountain of youth. While working for the Toronto Natural History Museum, Burton plans an exhibit on the origins of HIV in Canadian society. Fearing vilification, the ghost of Patient Zero, a French Canadian accused of being the first to bring the virus to North America, appears to Burton and forces him to rethink his positions and the display. From this unlikely premise begins an exploration of the politics of HIV-AIDS, complete with unique and ribald musical numbers and fantasy sequences.
