User Reviews

A thought- provoking, honest film from Philippine's finest director.



'Dolzura Cortez Story' is an artistic and brilliant film from Manila's finest director.

The movie's leading actress, Ms. Santos, played her part so powerfully, and is very convincing as Dolzura, the first Filipino HIV/AIDS patient to come- out to the public.

The movie is a thought- provoking film, ready to challenge the Filipino idea of what is right and what is wrong.
