MPGHS docu off to Nat’l AHD fest
by Rose D. Dagupen

BONTOC, Mountain Province – The Mountain Province General Comprehensive High School (MPGCHS) will represent the Cordillera region in the National Adolescent Health and Development (AHD) Film Festival with its documentary ‘Atsar’ that features the issues faced by the youth in the region.

Outpacing the seven finalists in the regional level, the MPGCHS’ entry bagged most of the awards such as best film, best cinematography, best production design, best poster, best actress, and best supporting actress during the premier and awarding program at the Venus Park View Hotel, Baguio City on Dec. 20.

MPGCHS qualified for the regional script writing competition along with seven other finalists.

With the theme, “Post millennial Filipinos: Renewed hope vs. risk,” the competition focuses on the sexual and non-sexual risks that the young people engage in with little know-ledge on its impacts to their lives.

The festival aimed to heighten public awareness on AHD and other issues that affect the youth  such as early marriage, maternal health, limited access to education and employment, poverty, domestic violence and threat of Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI)/Human Immune Virus and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.

According to the Commission on Population, the ADH program seeks to contribute to the improvement and promotion of the total well-being of young people by addressing issues related to adolescent and youth sexuality and reproductive health and rights.

Atsar is a term for ‘lesson learned’ featuring Manay, a nurse who advocates teenage pregnancy prevention and HIV/AIDS awareness.

Her story is an advocacy driven by her experiences as a teenage mother who once suffered the consequences like financial crisis and depression.

Atsar was based on the real life situation among the youths in the locality, especially that Cordillera region is one with high record on teenage child bearing rates, according to a study conducted by the University of the Philippines Population Institute.
