PEDRO is a celebration and dramatized chronicle of the life of Pedro Zamora, the gay, HIV-positive Cuban-American whose role as a third-season cast member of MTV's THE REAL WORLD was a social and pop-cultural watershed. Zamora's tragic death in 1994 at the age of 22 touched the hearts of millions of fans. Included along with the feature are three episodes of THE REAL WORLD: SAN FRANCISCO.
In 1994, Bunim/Murray Productions made the ground-breaking decision to cast openly gay, HIV-positive Cuban-American Pedro Zamora as part of MTV's The Real World: San Francisco. Zamora's time in The Real World house on Lombard Street brought a face to the AIDS crisis; and U.S. President Bill Clinton credited Zamora with personalizing and humanizing those with the disease. President Clinton even called Pedro's hospital room days before this death.
