Caring For The World Films Documentary "Cornerstone" Premieres Set
In the 1980s, the HIV/AIDS pandemic ravaged Uganda. Millions of orphans were left in its wake—along with countless widows and elderly parents who were supported by those who died. Poverty, darkness, and hopelessness spread throughout the country. CORNERSTONE is the inspiring documentary film about the journey of Twesigye Jackson Kaguri, a humble immigrant living the American dream, who returned to Uganda to help his home village save a generation of children orphaned by HIV/AIDS. His efforts ultimately transformed his village and helped empower the women who raised him. Award-winning Director Debi Lang and her team documented Kaguri’s colossal efforts that have changed the lives of thousands in Western Uganda.
World Premiere in Uganda December 1st - United States Premiere at The United Nations in New York City.
CARING FOR THE WORLD FILMS (CFTWF) documentary, CORNERSTONE, directed and produced by Debi Lang, about NYAKA AIDS ORPHANS PROJECT and 2015 Waislitz Global Citizen Award Winner, Twesigye Jackson Kaguri, will have its official North American debut at The United Nations in New York City, one week after its world premiere in Kampala, Uganda, December 1st in honor of World AIDS Day.
“It is a great honor to premiere CORNERSTONE in New York City and at the United Nations,” said Twesigye Jackson Kaguri, founder and executive director of NYAKA AIDS ORPHANS PROJECT. “AIDS is a global issue and to bring this film to New York City to launch our journey of CORNERSTONE is an important step, to not only show the work we’ve done with orphans and their grannies in Western Uganda all affected by this pandemic, but also to show the power of media to affect change in the world.”
CORNERSTONE has been a major undertaking, years in the making from CARING FOR THE WORLD FILMS. Director and producer Debi Lang says, “We are so grateful to our truly dedicated team in the making and promotion of our pro-bono documentary film, CORNERSTONE. We’re proud of this film and very excited about the premiere showing across the world starting with Uganda and New York’s United Nations. We are thankful for the opportunity to bring awareness to the exhaustive efforts of Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project."
