I thought i’d share our documentary trailer with you and some info about it. Would love to hear what you think and if you feel inclined to help, we’d love to discuss.
For the last 2 years we’ve been working on a documentary called Blood Brother and today we just released the first Official trailer for the film. Within the last two weeks, we have recieved 20k views on the trailer alone.
Blood Brother is the story of a group 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 HIV 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.

This entire project was funded by raising support from Kickstarter meaning we have no debt and no one to pay back for the film. Ultimately, that allows us to utilize any monitory gain from the film to help support the orphanage and the children with HIV in India, which you’ll see in the trailer.
So with that, we’re really just trying to make people aware of the film and the need to help.
Thanks a million for taking the time to read this and check out the trailer!
