Doc Soup Calgary - Official Selection, Hot Docs 2013
Blood Brother: Steve Hoover | United States | 2013 | 93 min.
After enduring a traumatic upbringing, and dissatisfied with his life in Pittsburgh, Rocky Braat travelled to India as an aimless tourist. What he found there was redemption and the family he never had.
Directed by his longtime friend Steve Hoover, Blood Brother follows Rocky's journey and stature within the tiny village of Tamil Nadu, where he has lived for the past five years. An intimate portrait of family and love, Blood Brother profiles Rocky's relationship with a group of HIV-positive children in the village. Unlike other tourists that visit and leave, Rocky decides to stay behind and dedicate his life to the dispossessed and their families. With determination to become more than just a passing influence in their lives, Rocky's dedication to his family becomes an invaluable resource in the lives of many.
Hot Docs is honoured to partner with the Calgary International Film Festival (CIFF) for the fifth consecutive season of Doc Soup Calgary.
