“Angels in the Dust” is a documentary film by filmmaker Louise Hogarth. An inspiring story about Marion Cloete, a university-trained therapist whose self-sacrificial courage motivates change and hope. In a nation plagued by the HIV/AIDS epidemic, orphans, rape, and violence, Marion abandons a life of privilege in Johannesburg to build Botshabelo, a village and school that provides orphaned children with shelter, food and education.
The stories of the orphaned children are paralleled with the orphaned elephants of Pilanesberg National Park in South Africa. In this poignant film, Marion attempts a similar strategy by re-parenting the orphaned children. ”Angels in the Dust” won the 2007 Emerging Pictures/Full Frame Audience Award at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.
It is produced by Dream Out Loud Films and Participant Productions.
