A special screening of I Am David, Believe in the Power to Change Your Destiny will be held in the Cecil B. Day Chapel at the Carter Center on Tuesday, Nov. 30, at 7 p.m. Check-in begins at 6 p.m. to benefit DeKalb County’s International Community School.

International Community School is a public charter school for refugee, immigrant and local children located in Avondale Estates.

The film, produced by Lions Gate Films and Walden Media, is a story based on the acclaimed children’s novel by Anne Holm.

The story’s protagonist, a 12-year-old refugee boy named David, escapes a communist labor camp in Belene, Bulgaria, carrying only a compass, pocketknife, a sealed letter, soap, a half-loaf of bread and instructions to go to Denmark.

Among the prominent Atlanta leaders hosting the event are Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor, Martin Luther King III, State Sen. Sam Zamarripa (D-Atlanta) and State Rep. Kathy Ashe (D-Atlanta).

Tickets for the screening are $50 and $100 for the screening and a VIP reception following the film.
