This project focuses on the lives of 15 Brazilian boys and girls living, mostly since birth, in an orphanage for HIV positive children in Curitiba, Brazil. Most of their childhood has already gone; they are adolescents becoming adults without ever belonging to a family. They remain in care as their cases don't move through the Brazilian legal system; their names were never included in the national registry of adoption. The situation highlights the precariousness of social policies and the failure of state powers in respect of the rights of the child. These children are invisible to society. Beyond them lies an invisible horizon that, obscured by the excuse of protection, segregates them and deprives them of their rights.
