Act V & Red Hot Congratulate "Blood Brother" for Winning the Sundance Festival U.S. Grand Jury Prize and the U.S. Documentary Audience Award
New film shines a light on India's AIDS Orphans through American Rocky Braat
NEW YORK, Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Act V: The End of AIDS and the Red Hot Organization congratulate Director Steve Hoover, Producer Danny Yourd, the ever-inspiring Humanitarian Rocky Braat, the production company Animal, and the whole Blood Brother team for winning two prestigious awards this week at the 2013 Sundance Festival: the U.S. Grand Jury Prize and the U.S. Documentary Audience Award.
"Rocky's story is so inspirational. Somehow, he found home in a far away place. His compassionate care of children with HIV/AIDS proves that love can move a mountain. I believe the world will be touched, moved and galvanized to take action and join us in helping as many children as possible survive AIDS. No child should live in an institution. Its up to all of us to focus on keeping parents alive and AIDS treatment is the answer to that," said Leigh Blake, Executive Producer of Blood Brother & President of Act V: The End of AIDS.
"We hope that Blood Brother will be seen by millions of people around the World and inspire them to join the movement to defeat HIV/AIDS. Rocky Braat serves as a role model for a generation who are stepping up and taking action on behalf of the voiceless. Together we can create a world of justice where no one has to suffer and die from AIDS. Thank you Blood Brother for bringing us one step closer to the endgame on AIDS," said John Carlin, Executive Producer of Blood Brother & President of the Red Hot Organization.
Arms Around the Child (http://armsaroundthechild.org/), the sister organization of Act V, is partnering with Blood Brother in response to Rocky Braat's journey to directly help and support Rocky, the children depicted in the film, and the millions of other orphans living with HIV/AIDS in India and Africa.
