Documentary "We Are Together"
I had the joy of watching a moving documentary called "We Are Together" about the remarkable Agape Orphanage children's choir, and their daily doses of pain and suffering.
Paul Taylor's moving film manages to be both life-affirming and a grim look at the realities of life for children in AIDS-ravaged South Africa. After spending three months working as a volunteer at the Agape Orphanage in KwaZulu Natal, Paul was inspired to make a movie about the children, many of whom had lost their parents to AIDS. The documentary focuses on the delightful 12-year-old Slindile Moya and her siblings, and takes you on the choir's journey to create a CD to raise funding for the orphanage so that it is able to take on more orphans. Expect tears of joy and sadness whilst watching this intimate and heart-felt portrait.
