In addition, "Road to Hope" will be screened at the 22nd Annual San Luis Obispo International Film Festival held March 16-20.

Torrey DeVitto, who stars in NBC's "Chicago Med" was part of the documentary crew and also serves as the film's narrator. Best known for his work on ABC's "Modern Family," three-time Emmy Award winning sound mixer Stephen Tibbo supervised "Road to Hope's" post-production sound and completed the final sound mix.

"Road to Hope" was filmed in Uganda, Kenya, South Sudan and California and documents the lives of children who had cared for their dying parents as well as the adults who shepherd them through the next phase of their lives. The film was inspired by the Hospice Foundation's partnership with the Palliative Care Association of Uganda (PCAU). PCAU's primary mission is to make palliative and hospice care accessible to the country's 41 million inhabitants.
