KUALA LUMPUR, NOVEMBER 27, 2017 – In conjunction with World AIDS Day on 1st December 2017, a local documentary film At Rainbow’s End will be screened from 30th November 2017 at Golden Screen Cinemas in 10 locations across nine states. Tickets are available at GSC ticketing counters and via its website.

At Rainbow’s End is a true story of Tan Mie Kong, a man living with HIV who lost contact with his family 12 years ago, after he contracted the virus from unsafe drug use. The producers of this film recorded the journey of this man to trace and reunite him with his family, using the only contact details he has – the mobile phone number of a younger brother who refuses to be in touch with him.

“Golden Screen Cinemas aims to continuously deliver enriching cinema experiences to customers, and part of this is through our brand of unique, alternative content available under the International Screens portfolio. International Screens offers audiences powerful, emotional stories with universally human themes, and we are honoured to be able to exclusively collaborate with the Positive Living Community and Fiery Films to show At Rainbow’s End, a film which touches on family, redemption, and the endurance of the human spirit,” said Ms. Koh Mei Lee, Chief Executive Officer of Golden Screen Cinemas.

“The story of Tan Mie Kong challenges the stigma, stereotypes and prejudices often associated with people living with HIV. He is living proof that being HIV-positive is not a death sentence and with compassion and proper treatment, care and support such as the services provided by Positive Living Community, people living with HIV can lead productive, meaningful, dignified lives. We applaud him for his courage to live and tell his truth and we hope his story will help us in our ongoing effort to end stigma and discrimination towards people living with HIV, and inspire the some 90,000 other Malaysians living with HIV to get treated and live fully,” said Bakhtiar Talhah, President of the Malaysian AIDS Council and Trustee of the Malaysian AIDS Foundation.

At Rainbow’s End is a story of hope, love, and forgiveness; a tearful yet joyous journey of discovery. It is a realistic and truthful story that aims to educate audience and remove the stigma around HIV, while championing the values of what it means to be family.

The film is proudly presented by Fiery Films (M) Sdn. Bhd., in collaboration with Golden Screen Cinemas, the Malaysian AIDS Council (MAC), Malaysian AIDS Foundation (MAF), and Positive Living Community (PLC).
