"Lost in Africa" Actress Connie Nielsen - of "Gladiator" and "Rushmore" fame - will present the U.S. premiere of "Lost In Africa" Saturday at the Mondavi Center at UC Davis. The suspense-filled film follows the travails of Simon, an 11-year-old adoptee and soccer fan, who returns to Kenya with his mother (Nielsen) only to get lost in one of Nairobi's largest slums. While on location, Nielsen was exposed to Kibera, the second largest slum in Africa. The searing poverty impelled her to found the Human Needs Project, a Bay Area-based foundation committed to providing clean water, energy and technology to slums around the world.
