Yeah, DH and I periodically donate $ for HIV/AIDS meds for mothers and children in Africa - through UNICEF, mostly. The disease has really devastated entire communities.

I can't wait to see it. Looks like a very moving and powerful story.

Thanks again for the heads up.

Poor little girl... this life can certainly be very hard sometimes. I've met some of the strongest people through this journey.

Yes! Incredible movie! Very moving, because it deals with the stigma of HIV/AIDS without being in your face, maudlin, sappy, or even confrontational. The heroine simply does what she believes is right - and that's what makes it so powerful.

The little girl reminds me of a student I currently have, who occasionally is out of school because she has to go with her mother to the child welfare office.

"Life, Above All"

South African movie about a young girl who discovers her mother has HIV/AIDS, and her town's reaction.

Excellent, sad, insightful, and says a lot about perception and character. We got it from Netflix. Totally recommend it. (I have no clue what language it's in, because I don't know which tribe the people are from. But the subtitles are very clear.)
