Think Small: BOSTON
The East African Center is Proud to Present:

Featuring a film screening of the inspirational and award winning documentary "A Small Act" directed by Jennifer Arnold

...When Hilde Back sponsored a young, rural Kenyan student, she thought nothing of it. She certainly never expected to hear from him, but years later she does. Now a Harvard graduate and a Human Rights Lawyer for the United Nations, Chris Mburu decides to find the stranger that changed his life. Inspired by her generosity, he starts a scholarship program of his own and names it for his former benefactor.

Using a strong narrative, the film interweaves seemingly separate lives into a cohesive whole. With clarity and grace, A SMALL ACT, bears witness to the ripple effect a single action can create.

Official selection for 2010 Sundance, Los Angeles, and Edinburgh Film Festivals.

All proceeds support the students at Vutakaka Primary and Junior Schools in Takaungu, Kenya,

Light food, beer, and wine

You will have the opportunity to purchase framed photographs by People editor and photographer Brenna Britton as well as sewing items from the Takaungu Sewing Co-operative,

Check out the XO laptops from One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) that our 5th and 6th graders are now using and see the terrific art they have created with them,

You will leave this amazing space feeling inspired.

After 2pm on Sunday, September 18th, you can only purchase tickets at the door - $20, please bring cash.
