It's Not Over even if you are HIV+ #ItsNotOver

1 in 3 teens in UK don't know that HIV is a STD

The other day I was invited by M.A.C. Cosmetics (even Beckham also got put on makeup so we guys should learn hahaha) for a screening about three persons who are HIV+ and how they live their life with positive attitudes. To be honest I don't really know how a HIV+ will feel like when they got ignored/abandoned by close friends after they knew their conditions. "It's Not Over" is a very nice reality documentary that will definitely teach you more about HIV. It IS possible for HIV+ person to have a normal relationship with healthy person as long they are under good medical care.

It's Not Over tells the inspiring story of three courageous millennials from around the world who ARE living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. Award winning filmmaker Andrew Jenks takes viewers on a journey across India, South Africa and the United States to experience the epidemic first hand. The result is a deeply personal and uplifting story that is rarely represented in popular culture. You can watch "It's Not Over" trailers below:

Jenks takes viewers on a journey to South Africa, where together with Lucky, explores an area with more people living with HIV than anywhere else in the world; to India, where Sarang, an openly gay HIV+ theater director fights to preserve his way of life; and to Middle America where Paige highlights how she has turned her bad experiences of being bullied and teased into something good as a youth advocate for HIV.

It's Not Over was made possible by the M·A·C AIDS Fund and is now available via Netflix, SnagFilms and Pivot where available. The special screening was held at TGV Indulge @ 1Utama and a huge paycheck with total of RM335,574.00 was presented by M.A.C. Cosmetics Malaysia to Malaysian AIDS Foundation.

Woot bad lighting but here's Nadia, emcee of the event. Long time no see yo!
I was sitting at the first row in TGV Indulge @ 1Utama and the chair does makes me feel comfortable (covered with the blanket while strong aircon blasting to us). However maybe because I was sitting too near or the shaky camera of the movie, I feel dizzy near the end of the screening haha. If you guys have 2 hours to spend, go watch "It's Not Over" on Snagfilms to learn more about HIV as they are true stories and considered as important knowledges to help us understand more bout HIV and one should never afraid of hanging out with a HIV+ person. They don't spread through contact and they are just a normal person like us too. Most importantly, you know how to prevent the infection/spreading of HIV+ by learning more about it.

For more information about It's Not Over Film, visit or watch it on Snagfilms. I hope Andrew Jenks will continue produce these meaningful films and Paige, Sarang, Lucky who fight HIV+ with bravery.
