7 November 2010 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Jennifer Arnold's documentary "A Small Act" focuses on Kenyan diplomat Chris's search for Hilde, the Swedish woman whose donations ensured that he could get through school. The documentary's point, as implied by the title, is that any deed - no matter how small - can have a great impact. To be certain, Chris founded his own scholarship program in honor of Hilde.

The documentary is not asking for contributions. It is merely showing how an act of goodwill can do a lot for a people whom the agent might never even meet. Above all, the people of Kenya continue to forge ahead, despite the riots that arose after the disputed 2007 election. Definitely one that I recommend.
