An all-star musical tribute to Kris will include performances by some of the greatest names in Texas music - Pat Green, The Flatlanders, Shawn Colvin, Bruce Robison, Kelly Willis, Ray Benson, Lukas Nelson, Carolyn Wonderland and the man himself - Kris Kristofferson.

The evening - and all proceeds from the movie and book Building Hope - benefit The Nobelity Project's work for basic rights for children everywhere, including the Kenya Schools Fund, building water systems, classrooms and libraries across rural Kenya.

Building Hope screening at Tribeca Cinemas - Tues, February 5

Director Turk Pipkin will kick off the DVD release of Building Hope with a special screening at the Tribeca Cinemas in NY on Tuesday, Feb 5.

Audience Award winner at SXSW, Building Hope chronicles The Nobelity Project's construction of the first high school for a remote African community. The film includes appearances by Kenyan youth counselor Auma Obama, sister of President Barack Obama, and by Cameron Sinclair, founder of Architecture for Humanity.

"Turk is a one-man journalism wrecking crew," writes Dan Rather of Building Hope. "What he demolished was the perception that there are no solutions."

Director Turk Pipkin (also known as that narcoleptic guy from The Sopranos) is available for radio, television and print in New York City from Feb 4 to 8.
