PARK CITY -- Palm Pictures picked up North American theatrical and home video rights Wednesday to the documentary We Are Together, the story of a South African AIDS orphanage.

Paul Taylor's film follows the orphans as they train for a London concert while struggling with their loss. The film won audience awards at this year's Tribeca Film Festival Audience Award, the Edinburgh International Film Festival and the Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival.

Taylor and Teddy Leifer produced through RISE Films in association with HBO Documentary Films and the Channel 4 British Documentary Film Foundation. Alicia Keys and Leigh Blake's Keep A Child Alive Foundation and Bono's ONE campaign will support the release.

Palm plans a May theatrical release, followed by a DVD release shortly thereafter.

The deal was negotiated by Palm managing partner Jan Korbelin with Ro*co Films International president Annie Roney.
