Pedro (Page 2)


PEDRO is based on the true-life story of Pedro Zamora, a Cuban-American who shared his experience living life to the fullest, despite being diagnosed as HIV positive at a young age. When he discovered he was HIV positive, he dedicated the rest of his life to speaking out about his condition to raise awareness in his community; even testifying before the U.S. Congress to argue for more HIV/AIDS
educational programs aimed at youth of colour. He gained nationwide attention in 1994 as a cast member of the MTV-Show THE REAL WORLD. When the director of the film saw Pedro on TV the first time: "Like the rest of the country, I was mesmerised by his story. My vision for PEDRO was to tell his story with the same level of passion and honesty that he lived his life, and to carry his message of HIV prevention and tolerance to new generations". Zamora’s time at the REAL WORLD-house brought a face to the AIDS crisis. When Pedro Zamora’s health began to deteriorate in late 1994, it made front page news nationwide in the US, and his death at age 22 provoked a worldwide outpouring of grief.
