As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the film deals with the Malawi orphan crisis, a subject that has personally affected the singer whose three year-old son David was an orphaned child she adopted from Malawi. Madonna is currently building a school in the area.
Madonna was writer, producer, and narrator of the documentary “I Am Because We Are.” The film will be shown on the Sundance Channel World AIDS Day, which is Monday, December 1. As noted in the AP report, President Bill Clinton and Archbishop Desmond Tutu will be featured commentators in the film.
Madonna was quoted in the report regarding making the film as stating “I had many goals… I did get to a point where I thought, ‘I’m being overambitious, I’m trying to say too much, I’ll never accomplish it.’ But I feel proud of the fact that I did get to make all my points.”
The star further remarked “If all you can do is live life in YOUR world in a way that shows you are responsible for the people around you, that’s a course of action… People can be of service in large ways and small.”
Viewers can catch “I Am Because We Are” on Sundance this Monday at 9 p.m. EST.
