Between January 2002 and January 2005 CINOMADE organised several Interactive film projections followed by debates on HIV-Aids in 183 towns and villages of Burkina Faso. 91 hours'street interviews shot during these awareness campaigns resulted in a trilogy. The three films are based on extracts made in the dioula speaking area, each dealing with a different topic.

The battle of sexes deals with the relationship between men and women, showing the socio-cultural and economic factors concerning the transmission of HIV. The sub context talks about the eternal misunderstanding between the two sexes which badly communicates and rejects the cause of the spreading of the disease.
