Angels in the Dust

Director: Louise Hogarth | Countries of production: South Africa | Year: 2007 | Length: 95 min
Language: English with English subtitles | Age: 12+ years

Marion Cloete, a university-trained therapist, along with her husband and two daughters, fearlessly walked away from a privileged life in a wealthy Johannesburg suburb to establish Boikarabelo (formerly Botshabelo), a village and school that provide shelter, food, and education to more than 550 South African children.

Angels in the Dust is the story of a courageous, self-sacrificing, fiercely loving woman who chooses a spiritual path over a material one; it tells of the life-changing power of one compassionate heart. For a nation overwhelmed by an epidemic of HIV/AIDS, orphans, rape, violence, and Apartheids legacy of social and political unrest, the film offers a clear pathway of hope and a replicable paradigm for the future.
