WE ARE TOGETHER tells the moving and inspiring story of 12 year old Slindile and her remarkable friends at the Agape orphanage in South Africa. Filmed over three years, with unforgettable kids, soaring music and a plot full of surprises, WE ARE TOGETHER arrives as a stirring and uplifting theatrical documentary.Written by
What a wonderful group of kids. They face heartbreaking tragedy and loss and dashed hopes, but all the while they are held up by their love for each other and God's love ("Agape," the name of the orphanage, is the ancient Greek word for it) and by their own beautiful singing, which soars throughout the movie up until the fairy-tale ending. I saw it this weekend at the True/False film festival in Columbia, Missouri, and I cried through the entire film. There was one point at which I almost started sobbing. Here's hoping this movie will receive enough press and popularity to attain a wide release and more people will be blessed with it as I was.
