'A Small Act' Interview with Director Jennifer Arnold
I had the opportunity to talk to Jennifer Arnold, writer/director/producer of documentary "A Small Act," screening for free tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Los Angeles Film Festival.'
The film follows the story of Hilde Back, a Holocaust survivor who decided to donate $15 a month toward a Kenyan boy's primary school education. According to the festival description, "That amount seemed inconsequential to her, but for Chris Mburu, it changed his life."
"Now a U.N. human rights lawyer who understands the importance of education in Africa, Mburu has founded a new scholarship fund, aptly named for his once unknown benefactor."
