Boy Scouts of Colombo

August 15, 2009

On August 3rd “759” was screened at the US Embassy in Colombo, Sri Lanka. We would like to thank the Embassy staff for giving us this opportunity–and we were thrilled and a bit surprised that the film attracted a capacity-crowd. Scouting is the largest youth organization in the world with over 38 million active members operating in just about every country in the world–including Sri Lanka.

Jake takes questions

There were a local Scouts in the audience and, as far as Colombo is from Harlem, Scouting served as a kind of common ground. After the film, Jake was drilled with questions by the audience and endured a crush of fans looking for autographs. We hear an encore performance is in the works. Thank you Sri Lanka!Boy Scouts of Colombo
