From the point of view of a painter, Sun and Petals is a 12-minute documentary looking into how the early interventions in HIV/AIDS left mothers and children behind. Commissioned by Penta Foundation, the film uses broad brushstrokes to look into the multidisciplinary roles of scientists and activists and the impacts on today’s child health research. As a multimedia piece, the canvases in the movie are on exhibition to draw more attention to maternal child health as championed by the Penta Foundation.
