Little Heaven*

Lydia is at a turning point in her life. We experience life through Lydia’s expressive face and reflective diary entries, her daily routines at the Little Heaven orphanage for children living with HIV, her conversations with other children there, her doctors’ appointments, and her exercise, study, and prayer. Despite being abandoned by their families or left alone when their parents died, the children form a new family, together with their caretakers. Their HIV status is always in the background, but small victories show us a life that is full of hope­, not despair.

*Part of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival - http://ff.hrw.org/

    Just got my ticket. I'm not sure how the parking is around the theater but for those driving I got the hook-up on parking in Rosslyn for anyone who might want to join me for the scenic walk there. Also, I was considering going here http://www.dasethiopian.com/ for eats after the film. It is just a few blocks away. I need a head count for those up for this plan because depending on how many people go, I may need to reserve a table at the restaurant. Let me know.

      Great. Look for the suave brotha in the grey tam & dark brown sweater in the theater (been having trouble uploading pics here). I may also have a dark grey blazer depending on how chilly it is in there.
