Dumadaan man sa krisis ang movie industry na affected ng COVID-19 pandemic, good news ang sumalubong sa producers ng pelikulang “Kalel, 15” dahil panalo bilang Best Actor ang bida nitong si Elijah Canlas sa 17th Asian Film Festival na naganap sa Rome, Italy.

 Ito ay para sa kanyang performance sa highly-acclaimed movie na “Kalel, 15” na idinirek ni Jun Lana. Ang “Kalel, 15” ay tungkol sa isang binata na anak ng pari at naging HIV positive.

 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

As I was preparing for my role in #Kalel15, I learned that the Philippines has been ranked as the country with the fastest growing number of HIV cases in the world. Some of the factors that affect this HIV epidemic, especially among the youth are: Low level of knowledge on how HIV is transmitted and prevented. Existing laws are prohibitive. Low participation or engagement of the youth sector in policy-making. The lack of safe spaces, particularly adolescent health facilities. Let’s educate ourselves and each other. Don’t let HIV taint your love. Get tested and stay protected with @durex_ph . #AlwaysComePrepared #NoOneWayLoveAllWays #DurexPh #HIVAwareness #PrideMonth
