Blood Brother Trailer - Documentary

Blood Brother Trailer - Documentary | BASIC VOWELS | Scoop.it

Blood Brother is the story of a group of children infected with HIV and Rocky Braat, a disenchanted young American 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.

 

Full documentary coming Fall 2012

Poignant Posters: Winter Collection

Poignant Posters: Winter Collection | BASIC VOWELS | Scoop.it
What a poignant reminder about how the words "Winter Collection" can take on an entirely different meaning depending on the person. New Ark Mission of India dressed up poor street kids in their everyday clothes - discarded newspapers, sacking and cardboard - and then photographed them for these moving posters.


The Mission is an organization solely dedicated to rescuing and rebuilding the lives of the destitute and dying people on the streets. It has marked a turning point for the poor people of India.
