Free screening of 'A Small Act' at your school?


We are pleased to be able to loan teachers and student leader groups a DVD of the multi award-winning film by Jennifer Arnold - 'A Small Act'. The film is suitable for Years 7 to 13.

A special 58-minute version of the film made for classrooms features the story of one of our 2013 recipient charities, the Hilde Back Education Fund, a grassroots charity for poor Kenyan children wishing to attend secondary school. Watch the trailer for A Small Act



With clarity and grace, A Small Act is a compelling story of how one small act can change lives. The feature-length documentary follows the intersecting lives of a Holocaust survivor in Sweden, the Kenyan man whose education she funded and three hard-working, endearing children from poor families attending school in rural Kenya.

The 58-minute version of the film is designed for classrooms. We are able to provide lesson plans which enable students to examine the film, poverty and it's causes.

We welcome students to consider fundraising for Purple Cake Day using our new online event fundraising platform after seeing the film. Funds support the charity featured in the film, along with children's education initiatives in Haiti and Nepal.


"A Small Act is such a powerful film to use in classrooms across the globe. It demonstrates how individuals can make a profound difference in the world." - Marc Skvirsky, Facing History and Ourselves. 
 
“An extremely well put together story with some genuine human graft. It’s a very, very likeable film”.
- Graeme Tuckett, National Radio, NZ
