Chris Kelly’s Modern Cinema Festival

Blood Brother
  • October 6, 2013 - 4:00pm

Winner of both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award for Best Documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Blood Brotherfollows a rudderless young man named Rocky Braat who finds his life purpose when he travels to India and begins volunteering at an orphanage with HIV-afflicted children. Director Steve Hoover takes us a journey that is alternately harrowing and transcendent, heartbreaking and funny—and altogether unforgettable. With any justice, you’ll be hearing about this film again come Oscar night.
