Winner of both the Sundance Film Festival's Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award, Blood Brother is a documentary about the unmistakable power of love, as celebrated in the story of one man's decision to move to India and restart his life among the children living at an HIV orphanage. Unlike others who simply passed through their lives, Rocky Braat stayed, dedicating himself to their health and well-being. "Rocky Anna" (as the children at the orphanage call him, which means "brother") grew up without a close-knit family of his own, and found his calling living and working with kids in need. Despite formidable challenges, his playful spirit and determination in the face of despair proves to be an invaluable resource. Director Steve Hoover, Rocky's longtime friend, ventured to India to chronicle Rocky's newfound life in this beautifully crafted and personal film. All filmmaker profits are being donated to directly benefit the children at the orphanage and other HIV/AIDS initiatives. Official Web Site
