‘Tililing’ movie poster hits raw nerve at CHR

The Commission on Human Rights on Sunday slammed the movie poster of “Tililing” for being “insensitive” to mental health issues.

“Bagama’t naniniwala ang CHR na mayroong artistic freedom ang mga manlilikha, ikinakabahala nito ang paglalabas ng poster ng pelikulang ‘Tililing’ na nagpapakita ng stereotypical at discriminating na imahe ng mga taong may iniindang mental health illnesses,” the group’s Facebook post read.

“Marami sa ating mga kababayan ang nahaharap sa iba’t ibang mental health challenges na nahihirapang humingi ng tulong dahil sa stigma. Kung kaya’t kinakailangan nating maging mas sensitibo sa pagtalakay ng isyung ito lalo na sa larangan ng mass media.”

The poster showed the actors—Baron Geisler, Gina Pareño, Chad Kinis, Donnalyn Bartolome, Candy Pangilinan and Yumi Lacsamana—making wacky poses with their tongues sticking out and eyeballs rolling.

“Marami nang miskonsepsyon na bumabalot sa usapin ng mental health at hindi makakatulong kung makakahon ito sa misleading na pagtingin,” the CHR said.

The movie studio Vincentiments reacted to the CHR post.

“Mundo, Ito ang Pilipinas. [smiley face] Sino ang nangStereotype—ang poster o ang tumitingin. Sarili ang Suriin,” the studio said in its Facebook post.
