Independent Film: Blood Brother

Have you seen or heard of the film Blood Brother?  It was on PBS's Independent Lens series recently but there are also showings nation-wide.  If you have not yet seen it, please do yourself a favor and find a way to make that happen!

The film is about a young guy, Rocky Braat, who sells everything he owns and quits his job to move to India, where he lives with and cares for women and children living with HIV and AIDS.  He becomes the ever-stable, always human, loving, will move mountains to care for his family, big brother, best friend and father to these kids.  Rocky's goal seems to be to make sure every human knows they are worthy of love.  It's beautiful!  What makes the story even richer is that it is filmed by his best friend, who also adds a special layer to the overall story too.  

I sincerely hope everyone finds a way to see this film.  It will stir your heart in great ways.  

And if you have already seen it, what did you think?  Did you too want to up and move to India with Rocky?

I haven't seen this film but it looks inspirational. I think we hear so much these days about the terrible things which people do, instead we should be celebrating the good which people like Rocky do.
