On Thursday, Mar. 6 Studio Movie and Grill City Centre in Houston is the location of choice for the premier of ‘What Matters.’ It is an award-winning documentary about three friends who not only hitch-hike their way to Africa, but also their way around the country on a $1.25 a day budget.

The word Texas means friendship and this film is about 3 friends on a life-changing journey. Houston has been named “The Big Heart” city for its on-going relief efforts during hurricane Rita, so it was only appropriate for this community to experience ‘What Matters’ first-hand.

For film lovers, this movie beautifully moves and educates its audience about extreme poverty. It’s a call to action film motivating everyone to increase their awareness and take action against this global issue.

The screening proceeds will go to Human-Rights Education and Relief Organization better known as HERO, a non-profit that promotes human dignity in all stages of life through international education and relief programs.

Seating is limited, so purchase tickets by going to  There will not be any walk-up ticket sales available for this special screening.
