RESCUED: Upcoming Documentary on Haiti’s Orphans on CNN, and First at Summit

CNN is preparing to air a potent documentary on orphans in Haiti early next month.   The special, titled Rescued, will share the journey of Haitian orphans through the eyes of two children, also telling the story of American missionaries who’ve given their lives to serving Haiti’s orphans.  The stories and imagery are sure to stir much emotion, as well as much discussion, when it airs on May 8.   The documentary project began long before Haiti’s earthquake, filmed by Alliance Member organization Discover the Journey, which helps tell the stories of orphans worldwide through excellent cinematography.  You can see the CNN trailer here, and remarkable clips of Haitian orphans talking about the earthquake that devastated their country here.   You’ll also be able to see a fuller preview of the documentary during an optional dinner discussion on Friday evening at Summit VI, where one of the filmmakers involved in the project will show clips and lead discussion around the themes raised in the film.
