HIV (Si Heidi, si Ivy at si Vanessa). This was the film we watch last December 16, 2012. Having a Great actor, Jake Cuenca who played as Virgilio Gil Bustamante beautifies the movie seeing him. This film is another campaign material of the Department of Health (DOH) to disseminate information on the prevention of HIV and AIDS to our country. Simply, to inform us how these viruses affect our immune system. Human Immunodeficiency Virus or HIV is a lent virus that causes required immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), a conditions in humans in which progressive failure of the immune system allows life-threatening opportunistic infections and cancers. This disease can lead to death but there are drugs that can longer the life of a person who is infected with this kind of viruses.
That drug is the Antiretroviral drugs (ARV), this are medications for the treatment of infection by the retroviruses, primarily HIV. At first, Gil Bustamante is inspired doing that project; he faced many challenges just to run that film. But not all story ends up with a happy ending, Heidi died; Ivy didn’t finish helping Bustamante to run the film while Vanessa gets beaten by a band of thugs while crossing the streets.And facing her own weakness/fear, Gil Bustamante a HIV positive. The story ends when he revealed that he is also a victim of that virus. The disease made me realize the latter part of the movie.
It is a shocking moment for us knowing that Gil Bustamante is a positive, we thought that he is only the portraying a character that is a filmmaker.
The plot of the story was great. Characters portrayed their role very well, well done actors and actresses. The flow of the story is amazing because you don’t know what would be the next scene or what would be the ending. It will be an eye-opener to everyone that having these viruses or infected by these viruses means the end of your life. It will inform us that the fight against HIV/AIDS is not solely the responsibility of the government; it is a fight that demands responsible action from every individual. HIV/AIDS can kill us so we must be aware of that. This film will help people to realize that in we should be aware in everything that we do.
