“I Am Because We Are” with Bill Clinton and Madonna. A documentary, released in 2008, about the extreme poverty, AIDS and practices in the African nation of Malawi, which just happens to be where her 2 adpoted children came from.
I don’t know, is it just me or does Madonna have a tough time pulling off the caring mother routine? She’s simply not credible in that roll, if you ask me. She speaks throughout the film in a monatanous tone that made me want to scream.
“I Am Because We Are” presents the same old tired message that we are one and we must help. None of the information is new or even creative. Basically, Madonna knew that she could sell DVD’s if she produced this film, with her name on it. She simply did not put much effort into it. All proceeds from this film go to Madonna’s non-profit charity, Raising Malawi.
While I feel for the citizens of Malawi, until they stop some of their risky social practices, nothing is going to make a difference in that country. I’m certainly glad she’s there to help them.
