Very real and very raw. We can look at news reports and see the climbing numbers of the AIDS epidemics but until we meet the men, women and children behind it all do we only start to understand the human element. The orphans are just a piece of all this. Warning, there is talk of child rape in this video and it may be very difficult for some to watch.

While there is definitely a promotional angel to the video, I found it highly insightful into the situation in Africa. I think the volunteers are really quite admirable although I disagree with their faith-based program. Regardless, I think this film is worth seeing.

Angels in the Dust is a memorable documentary. Marion Cloete gave up her cozy life and, with her family, devoted every penny and every minute to rescuing the disadvantaged in South Africa. There is a little bit of condescension evident but who else could and would do this valuable work.

Documentary or Promotional video? Or both?

The heart of the film is the tragic stories told by innocent children of rape and forced prostitution. The main premise of the film is the dedication of Marion and Con Cloete and their life from activist against apartheid to the present orphanage they run for orphans of HIV parents. The movie had a good story line and was well done. It makes you want to donate to their cause.
