See the trailer for A Small Act, screening tonight with director Jennifer Arnold

It was a classic case of giving back: Chris Mburu, once sponsored by an American named Hilde Beck to attend school in his native Kenya, went on to graduate from Harvard, become a human rights lawyer and start a Kenyan school of his own for students in the situation he once was in. In A Small Act, director Jennifer Arnold follows Mbutu through the travails of starting and running a school, particularly through the violent aftermath of the recent Kenyan presidential elections. Tonight, you can see that movie -- and chat with Arnold in the flesh -- for free.

The film screens tonight at 6:30 p.m. at L2 Arts and Culture Center, with the conversation with Arnold to follow -- RSVPs are required; you can do that by calling 303-316-4848, ext. 237.
