If you haven't had a chance to see Steve Hoover's documentary Blood Brother at various screenings around town, here's your chance to catch it on TV. The award-winning film — it won the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award for Documentary at Sundance a year ago — screens as part of PBS's Independent Lens series tonight at 10 p.m.

The locally produced film follows Pittsburgh Rocky Braat, as he relocates to India and finds his life's work at an orphanage, caring for children with HIV/AIDS.

A DVD of the film is scheduled to be released on Feb. 14.
