Director Steve Hoover's documentary film "Blood Brother" about one man’s decision to move to India and restart his life among the dispossessed has won the U.S. Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
The film tells the story of an American man named Rocky Braat, who moves to India to aid children at an orphanage infected with HIV, after becoming dissatisfied with his life in America.
Having grown up without a close-knit family of his own, he found his calling living and working with kids in need.
Unlike others who simply passed through their lives, Rocky stayed, dedicating himself to their health and well-being.
Despite formidable challenges, his playful spirit and determination in the face of despair proves to be an invaluable resource.
The filmmakers have also set up a 501c3 accredited non-profit organization called LIGHT (Living to Inspire Global Healing Today) in response to Rocky Braat and "Blood Brother" as a way to directly help and support Rocky, the kids and other orphanages.
According to organizers, donations to LIGHT will provide for the orphans’ needs in Chennai as well as implement other various projects through volunteers who give up their time, energy, and money to being a LIGHT to the world.
