The Human Rights Watch Student Task Force will host a screening of the "The First Grader" tonight at Hart High School.

The award-winning film is based on the true story of an 84-year-old Kenyan man's quest to receive a first-grade education.

The screening is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium at Hart High School, 24825 Newhall Ave. in Newhall. The movie is being shown for free, but the community is asked to support the student organization through donations and the purchase of concessions.

All of the money raised benefits the club's efforts to build a mobile library for Darfuri refugees living in southeastern Chad. They aim to provide the refugee children with educational materials.

The movie is rated PG-13 and students in grades 7-12 are encouraged to attend.
