    How Far Would You Go To Save Your Country?

    Can a small group of college students from Botswana challenge conventional wisdom about AIDS in Africa to save their generation?

    Innocent is nervous about performing in front of so many high-schoolers. Kez is a girl, and the new leader of the group in a male-dominated society. Odi counsels students on AIDS, but has never been tested. He has a hard choice to make. Tumi knows that it's not proper in her country to talk about sex, but what she has to say is important. Agnes is from a rural village that where witchcraft promises to cure AIDS. They have one thing in common, they are part of a group of college students with a passion and a mission. And a desire for change.

    THE ROAD WE KNOW follows a group of Botswana college students in 2009 as the tide was turning in HIV/AIDS prevention. I was able to capture a moment in time, as these students headed around their country, facing cultural taboos and difficult travel, for five weeks with three tents, one car, and a radical solution to save lives.

    My documentary THE ROAD WE KNOW premieres for World AIDS Day this Thursday in Marietta, GA. It’s a free screening, open to the public at 7pm, Johnson Ferry Baptist Church. This screening in my hometown will launch THE ROAD WE KNOW Movement, a national screening campaign. On the cutting edge of film distribution and audience engagement, we are reaching out to anyone interested in spreading the message of this film, hosting a screening, starting a discussion, and inspiring everyone that you can do more than you even realize to affect change in your country. I’ll be there too – come meet me! I’ll be answering questions after the screening.
