Film Screening -- "A Small Act" 

A Small ActYou're invited to join UCR Palm Desert and Inland & Desert Hillel for a free movie night featuring "A Small Act," an inspiring documentary that illustrates the ripple effect that a single action can create.

"A Small Act" tells the true story of Hilde Back, a young Jewish woman who escaped Nazi Germany to find refuge in Sweden. Moved by the generosity of her adopted country, she eventually sponsors a young Kenyan boy, Chris Mburu. Her humble sponsorship puts Chris through school and launches him into Harvard Law, paving the way to his job as a United Nations attorney and founder of an education fund for the children of his village.

The film reveals the power of a small gesture and emphasizes that an education is perhaps the most generous gift of all.

Free - RSVP's required. Click here to register, or call 760-834-0800 for more information.  Light refreshments provided.  

Sponsored by Inland & Desert Hillel and the UCR Palm Desert MFA program.
