Veteran UK director Avie Luthra makes a sensitive short film about Lucky, a South African AIDS orphan who learns about life through an unlikely bond with a racist Indian woman. Award winning short film screened at over 50 international festivals.
"The aim of the film was to dramatise the effects of HIV on children in South Africa, whilst looking at African/Indian relationships. The film was shot in and around Durban in Natal, where HIV is estimated at around 40%. The story is taken from real life accounts and research of AIDS orphans and the difficulties they face." - Director Avie Luthra
