Blood Brother

Rocky Braat knew his life in America lacked a sense of meaning and purpose. What he didn’t know is where he would end up finding fulfilment; at an HIV orphanage in India. This documentary is told through the eyes of Rocky’s best friend, Steve Hoover, who sets out with his handheld camera to visit Rocky in India. Steve cannot believe the courageous and admirable life Rocky has created for himself with his days spent playing, nursing, feeding and living with the children in the orphanage. While Steve grapples with the idea of it all, Rocky immerses himself deeper into the lives of the sick children and the Indian culture.

This story reduced the Film Festival audience to tears and received a standing ovation – a testament to its immense effect.

If you only ever see one film, make it this.
