Blood Brother is a documentary directed by Steve Hooper that chronicles Rocky Braat’s journey to an orphanage for children with HIV/AIDS. Originally, Braat’s plan was stay for 10 days, but his trip was extended to the summer, and then, he realized he wanted to stay indefinitely.
The documentary is full of heart, and is no doubt an emotional journey. The film itself took the the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary and the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
