Movie Info

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.

  • One of the most staggeringly straightforward looks at death I've ever seen. The movie's grace note is its subtlety.

  • It thoughtfully illuminates a seemingly unsolvable problem while proving that one person really can make a difference.

  • ......often less than compelling.

  • Writer-director Louise Hogarth shrinks an enormous issue down to human terms...

    Sep 28, 2007 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Hogarth creates such a complete and satisfying world in the village that when her camera pans away to a forest of tiny graves in a Soweto cemetery, it's a necessary shock to realize that Cloete's haven is one happy drop in an ocean of suffering.
