Angels in the Dust is a 2007 South African documentary film by filmmaker Louise Hogarth.[1] The film follows Marion Cloete, a university-trained therapist who leaves behind her life of privilege in Johannesburg to build Boikarabelo, a village and school that provides orphaned children with shelter, food and education.[2] The stories of the orphaned children are paralleled with the orphaned elephants of Pilanesberg National Park in South Africa.

Angels in the Dust won the 2007 Emerging Pictures/Full Frame Audience Award at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.[3] It also won an Audience Award at the Encounters South African International Documentary Festival in 2008. It is produced by Dream Out Loud Films and Participant Productions.
