I remember watching this movie in Burnaby with my ex actually years ago, just before we went back to Taiwan and both got diagnosed with HIV. It’s only a short and actually not that long, but it’s definitely memorable. It’s kind, well was kind of strange going through the whole thing in Asia as opposed to back home in Canada.
A lot of predisposed opinions, perceptions about people who have HIV, judgement and things like that, while perhaps slightly aligning with an experience you’d have in Canada, I really don’t think you can compare the two.
I would recommend this movie to anyone honestly, gay, straight, HIV, No HIV, you should just check it out, I cried like a baby haha.
The point of this post more so is just so I won’t. Forget about the movie, to download it and keep it. I’m not sure if you can purchase it somewhere but it was definitely a movie I’ll remember in the years to come and a relate-able experience for me. The attached YouTube version has subs as the whole films in Canto.
Let me know what you think on Twitter, Insta, or anywhere I have a profile that allows comments! Haha. If you can’t view the movie from within this post, just open it in YouTube itself as I’m not sure about the attribution settings!
