When I grow up I think I’d like to be Forest Whitaker. Half-actor, half-activist — Whitaker is not only a powerhouse actor, but a powerhouse humanitarian.
To continue his good work, Forest will host a special screening of Kassim The Dream, a multiple award-winning documentary based on the journey of a Ugandan child from child soldier to world champion boxer.
The screening will be held on January 29th and help benefit Hope North – a refuge for orphans and escaped child soldiers in northern Uganda that provides schooling and training to rebuild their lives.
Tickets to the event are a mere $25 and include VIP seating at ArcLight Cinemas in Los Angeles, and a cocktail reception and question and answer period afterwards.
