One Small Act by Jennifer Arnold

A wise man once said ‘’ Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change - this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, and fresh hope. And out of hope, progress.’’ It tells the story of Chris Mburu, a child from Kenya, and how his life was changed by a woman named Hilde Beck. Hilde Beck is an 87 year old survivor of the holocaust her parents were killed in concentration camps and she left Germany to Sweden to have a better life. She became a teacher only making a little over minimum wage but yet still gave some money out of her own pockets to sponsor a child and that child’s name was Chris Mburu.

The foundation helps kids in rural villages go to school and the story shows two children who are fighting to be in the top of their class so they can get a scholarship to secondary school. While all of this is going on there is an election going on and the children have to focus on their KCPE examinations. One of the children in the film named kimani gets the scholarship he had a score of 320. The girl got a score of 270. But the filmmakers sponsor her in an act of kindness so she can go to secondary school.
The filmmaker’s intentions are to show the audience on how it is in Kenya and how a small act of kindness can jumpstart a foundation of happiness. The style of the documentary was observational because the filmmakers didn’t really participate in the film other than shooting it. While the election was going on there were trucks coming by telling people to vote and there were speaking in their native tone they had subtitles for it. The camera angle was at eye level with the subjects the filmmakers got there trust and they spoke freely. The shot sizes were in middle.
All together the film was amazing something that I think I will never forget. The part of the movie I like the most is when the girl didn’t qualify for the scholarship and the filmmakers sponsored her. I have learned that a small act of kindness can fuel a foundation of happiness. The things that most surprised me was when they both got lower than what they were expecting but it still didn’t affect them cause they both get the chance to go to secondary school. I believe education is the key to Africa and this film shows it. A small act of kindness started a generation.
