Blood Brother Trailer from Blood Brother on Vimeo.
Danny Yourd, producer of Blood Brother says:
Blood Brother is the story of a group of children infected with HIV and Rocky Braat, a disenchanted young American that met them while drifting through India. He wanted to save them all, but in reality he couldn’t cure even one of them. He had to stay. It’s a hard life. He faces opposition in many forms. He lives in a concrete hut. Sometimes, he is close to despair. The truth is, he needs them as much as they need him. They teach him, daily, that love is the only thing that makes life worth living.

Something really special to us is that this entire project was funded through donations. This means we have no debt and no one to pay back for the film, allowing any/all monetary gain from the film to be used to help support the orphanage and the children with HIV in India, as well as supporting Rocky and his efforts. The funding we raised covered the necessities of the entire production. On top of that virtually everyone up to this point has worked for free - donating their time, talents and expertise towards the project. Because of this, we're set up to donate all our profits. When this all blows over, Rocky will still be in India so we want this to somehow support him for a long time. His cost of living is low, so we can spread support out over time. We have no personal interest for financial gain in this project.
