Group recreates version of 'Tililing' promotional poster after controversy

 While the poster for Viva's upcoming movie 'Tililing' sparked online debate, mental health group shared their version of the controversial poster. 






The Anxiety and Depression Support Philippines Facebook post says, "We can't judge the movie if we havent seen it yet. Let us just hope that it's done tastefully." However, they admitted that 'the poster is problematic.'








"You see.. media is a big part of social conditioning. Na pag maputi, maganda. Ung pulis, sa huli dumadating. Pag bakla, kikay. Pati na yung may mental health issues, suicidal sila or may split personality. 





"Di lahat ng makakakita ng original poster ay magbabasa, mag-iimbestiga o manunuod. Maaaring tumatak yang impresyon na yan sa utak nila ng matagal o habambuhay.





"Paano ang mental health community? Stigmatized na nga kami, diba. Medyo hindi maganda ang dating ng poster na ito. Hindi lang sa pagsstereotyping, sa ikinabit na expression sa salitang tililing kundi sa salitang tililing mismo. 





"Even us patients and the professionals don't use this word. Even the government is careful in addressing people with mental health struggles.




"Wag natin pausuhin.

"And the sad part is, hindi naman lahat ng may "tililing" or may pinagdaraanan ay mahahalata mo. Yung ibang may pinagdadaanan, sila pa yung nakatawa. Sila yung pinakamasaya sa barkada, ang breadwinner ng pamilya, ang boss ng kumpanya, ang pinakamagaling sa eskwela.





"Ika nga nila, maraming mukha ang problema. At gusto namin ipakita rin ang ibang muka - merong mukang masaya, highly functional, productive pero sa loob loob, may kadiliman.





"Again, the poster is problematic but that's a good marketing tactic. 







"Do understand na for the sake of publicity, most people will do everything for marketing. Wala silang intensyon manakit, ang intensyon nila ay bumenta. Nung inisip yung poster, siyempre ang inisip nila ay kung paano magiging catchy at mapansin. Hindi nila inisip na kung may matatapakan ba or accurate ba.





"Kung maganda man ang intensyon ng pelikula, exciting yan! Sana may guidance ng mga eksperto para pasok talaga sa banga lalo kung para sa mental health awareness ito. If not.. oh well, that's showbiz," the group said.





Recently, actress Liza Soberano who's very vocal about mental health issue expressed her disapproval to the poster published for Viva's upcoming movie, Tililing, directed by Darryl Yap.
