Blood Brother Screening Tonight Helps India Orphanage and Other HIV/AIDS Causes

Park City, Utah's Sundance Film Festival is known for celebrating godless, same-sex-loving, liberal-agenda-pushing movies, but a recent award winner from the fest Robert Redford helped found is being presented by an Orange County Christian church.

Orange County Church of Christ, which hosts Sunday services in Irvine and Fullerton, presents the documentary Blood Brother at 7:30 tonight at the AMC Tustin 14.

From Pittsburgh native Steve Hoover, the winner of audience and grand-jury prizes at this year's Sundance follows Rocky Braat, who left behind his career and a troubled upbringing marred by neglect and abuse for India in an attempt to seek authenticity. On a whim, he finds himself in an orphanage for children with HIV. As the story on the transformative power of love and hope shows, the orphanage becomes Braat's home.

Tickets for tonight's Blood Brother showing are $10, and all proceeds go to the orphanage and other HIV/AIDS organizations. For more on the movie (including the trailer), visit For more on the screening (including ticket info), go to
