"Nothing Short of Wondrous" Critics Pick New York Magazine
27 October 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Louise Hogarth's documentary chronicles the extraordinary efforts of Marion Cloete, a university-trained therapist who left a privileged life in Johannesburg to establish a sanctuary for South African children orphaned by the AIDS virus. Hogarth's touch is nearly undetectable, but it's nothing short of wondrous to watch these scarred, abused children transform into sprightly, self-aware cherubs under Cloete's unwavering care.

Angels in the Dust is a story of hope and healing in the face of a staggering crisis. AIDS is leaving entire South African villages decimated and thousands of children orphaned, with no adults to raise them. The inspiring story of Marion Cloete, a university-trained therapist who— with her husband and three daughters— fearlessly walked away from a privileged life in a wealthy Johannesburg suburb to build Botshabelo, an extraordinary village and school that provides shelter, food, and education to more than 550 South African children.
