“I Love Africa,” a feature-length documentary following HIV/AIDS activist Suzanne Africa Engo, will premiere December 1, in honor of World AIDS Day, on MTV Act.

More on the film:

“I Love Africa” gives young people an in-depth look at how one individual can make a difference in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The film follows Engo as she struggles to lose 110 pounds by running to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS. The activist set a challenge that she would lose the weight and run from the United Nations in New York to Oprah Winfrey Studios in Chicago. After the mission was completed, she continued a run through three different continents, promoting awareness of AIDS charities and initiatives such as Bono and Bobby Shriver’s (Product) RED and Russell Simmons’ DEF FUND.
