Web series CL♥SER - Trailer | LGBT Web series | ENGLISH SUBTITLES
CLOSER is a web series with 5 episodes (6 minutes), produced and directed by Luis Fabiano Teixeira and Tiago Cardoso and will be available on YouTube on 1st December (World AIDS Day).
Daniel (Lucas Onofre) and Antonio (Renato Almeida) love each other, but the condition of the first, who is HIV positive, puts the future of the relationship in question. Between the guys is Karina, best friend of Daniel and also friend of Antonio.
The theme is approached respectfully and straightforwardly, mixing suspense, drama, romance and a bit of comedy. And, of course, some social merchandising: protected sex, HIV test and relationship between sero-discordant couples.
Unfortunately, talking about HIV is still taboo in Brazil.
The fear of rejection and prejudice often pushes HIV-positive people into a world of silence and darkness, so we believe that talking about it is a way to shed some light on the discussion and show acceptance.
In general, our message is very simple: bring these people closer to the heart and away from prejudice, so the web series is named CLOSER.
