Catching up with Rocky Braat

In “Blood Brother,” filmmakers Steve Hoover (center) and Danny Yourd (right), capture the lives of Rocky Braat (left) and the inspiring HIV-positive orphans, who thrive despite their status.


We hope you’ve had a chance to read about Rocky Braat and Steve Hoover’s film “Blood Brother” in our past blogs.  Maybe you were even lucky enough to catch “Blood Brother” in theaters, or on PBS as a  part of the PBS’ Independent Lens series. 

We’re delighted to share an update on Rocky and the children we came to love, from our friends at PBS. 

In addition, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) has partnered with the film’s distributer, Tugg, Inc., and Mylan Laboratories, a producer of antiretroviral therapy (ART) medications, to offer students a chance to screen the film.  So far, we’ve been lucky enough to screen the film for two of our UP 4 THE FIGHT campus partners, Baldwin-Wallace University and UC Berkeley!
