(CNS): Adonza Harrison the Executive Producer of local movie which seeks to raise awareness about HIV in the Cayman Islands told Rotary members recently the disease was present and the film was a way to send the message home. Harrison along with Luigi Moxam and Olivia Scott Ramirez who are both acting in the film “When No One is looking” as well as Margaret Michaud, the Programme Coordinator for the Cayman AIDS Foundation sought the backing of the community group to help them get the film made."HIV is in Cayman.  Our response determines our future," Harrison said. 

Moxam stressed the importance of not thinking of AIDS as just an African disease and said AIDS is very much an issue for the Caribbean and the Cayman Islands.

Rotary Central President Wil Pineau said Rotary Central was supportive of the efforts and aims of the locally produced film and encouraged the local community to assist WNOL. “This local film is a very impressive effort with a valuable message and I am confident that they will receive support from the wider community,” said Pineau adding that the project was being led by a group of young Caymanians.
 
 “In the current Rotary year youth is one of our primary emphasis and it is very pleasing to see such important initiatives being led by our country’s future leaders,” he said.
 
The filmmakers have already produce a trailer for the movie and are now seeking help with funding in order to make the full length feature film.
