"We Are Together: The Children of Agape Choir" on HBO

2nd\NE Quadrant: The Approval Matrix

For Slindile Moya and other children living at the Agape Child Care Center in South Africa, music is a touchstone that brings them comfort and joy in times of happiness and loss. This documentary reveals the poignant story of this 12-year-old girl, her siblings and other residents of an orphanage for children who have lost their parents--mostly to AIDS. Shot over three years, the film focuses on Slindile's family and other residents who are members of the choir as they rehearse for a CD and a possible trip abroad to raise much-needed funds to expand the orphanage. --HBO
