In observance of World AIDS Day, December 1, the Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA) presents a four-day screening of the documentary Sons of Lwala (2008).
Sons of Lwala is a documentary that traces the journey of two brothers from Kenya, Milton and Fred Ochieng. After Lwala, their hometown, assisted the two brothers in raising money for their airfare to go to the United States to attend medical school, the two men return home to discover that both of their parents have died. In a town where no medical facilities exist and the closest one is several miles away, the Ochieng brothers decide to complete the work their father began to build a medical clinic in their town. Unable to raise the money themselves, they appeal to friends in the United States for help. As word of their plight spreads across the country, a nationwide movement is started to save Lwala.
