HIV and AIDS
Language(s): Khmer, subtitles: Eng
The "Love & Relationships" project is in line with UNESCO's commitment to supporting a comprehensive HIV response through facilitating an Education, Culture and Communication Sector response to HIV and AIDS. In this occasion, during the month of March 2009, UNESCO in cooperation with the French Cultural Center, will screen the Khmer movie "The place of dreams" produced in 2008 by BBC World Service Trust.
The movie is a Cambodian drama about young people and their dreams and relationships. The film aims to entertain and encourage the target audience to adopt behaviors that will reduce their risk of HIV infection and transmission.
The overall aim of the project is to highlight challenges young people face in intimate relationships, particularly concerns related to sexuality and discrimination based on gender and/or sexual orientation - topics formal education has been reluctant to explicitly address.
