Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) will host the March 27 premiere of "Sons of Lwala," a documentary following Vanderbilt University School of Medicine students Milton and Fred Ochieng on their quest to open a health clinic in their home village of Lwala, Kenya.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Lwala clinic. The film will show at 7:30 p.m. at TPAC's Jackson Hall, with former U.S. Sen. Bill Frist as emcee. For tickets and information, go to:;; or
