Little Gems / Les Pépites
By Xavier de Lauzanne, 2016 – France – 88 min

Come support a great cause through giving to "For a Child’s Smile" while enjoying an enlightening documentary.

After the screening, you will have the opportunity to interact with PSE’s local representatives while sharing a drink and savoring Cambodian finger food.

The French Embassy proudly presents the 2016 film Little Gems by Xavier de Lauzanne. This special screening is a fundraiser for PSE - For a Child’s Smile and is part of our Month of Francophonie.

French NGO « Pour un Sourire d’Enfant » (For a Child’s Smile), or PSE, was born in the spring of 1996. The project started with around twenty children, to whom a daily meal was given directly on the Cambodian landfill they lived on; they lived in a rented house that quickly became too crowded. Soon, it is hundreds, even thousands of children saved.

Facing each obstacle, Christian and Marie-France des Pallières, founders of PSE, found a way out with only the children’s best interests at heart.

Today, about 6,500 children are being looked after. They receive general education, and vocational training in order to find a job, meals, health services and support for the whole family..

This extraordinary human adventure is the story told in the film Little Gems by Xavier de Lauzanne.
