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, Dec. 1, 2016 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 CFTWF. Director and producer 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.”

The event will be an exclusive VIP affair to support Cornerstone’s beneficiaries, Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project. This exceptional night of celebration and honor will include CNN Hero Jackson Kaguri, filmmaker Debi Lang and film composer, Howard Wulkan in attendance.  Special performances and guests will be included amongst the festivities of the reception. A Ugandan marketplace of crafts including handmade jewelry and colorful baskets will be set up for guests to shop. VIP access ticket holders will attend a private reception, featuring an address by Kaguri and an opportunity to meet the CFTWF production team.
