After producing this powerful documentary about forgotten children and dealing with the death of his younger brother, Charlie says he's learned to be thankful for every day that he talks to his mom and dad. Now, he says he knows the value of "absolute love."
After the crash that killed Teddy, Charlie says he won't go a day without telling his family, "I love you." This, he says, Mama Jackey taught him. "She says to [her students], 'You tell each other you love each other—and you believe it.' It's not just words. It's this sense of community that has to happen."
Ithuteng is scheduled to air on HBO this fall.
