Today, I’m bringing you a trailer for the independent documentary film Blood Brother. This film is by a friend’s cousin. Blood Brother has been chosen for a screening at Sundance. Take a moment to check it out:

According to the filmmaker:

Blood Brother is the story of a group of children infected with HIV and Rocky Braat, a disenchanted young American that met them while drifting through India. They were left on the doorstep of a slum orphanage by their families: he had bounced between parents and jobs his whole life.

He wanted to adopt them all, but in reality, he couldn’t cure even one of them.

He had to stay. Today, he lives
in a concrete hut a few hundred yards from the orphanage. Every day he encounters the bitter reality of HIV infection. People in the nearby village have tried to force the orphans out because they think the disease is communicable through touch. But the truth is—Rocky needs the kids as much as they need him. Every day they teach him what some of us will never really learn: love is the only thing that makes life worth living.
