Event Description
From Academy Award nominated director Richard Robbins comes an unforgettable feature film about the power of education. Featuring 9 extraordinary girls from 9 countries whose stories are told by 9 celebrated writers and voiced by 9 renowned actresses. The film spotlights unforgettable girls like Sokha, and orphan who rises from the dumps of Cambodia to become a star student and an accomplished dancer; Suma, who composes music to help her endure forced servitude in Nepal and today crusades to free others; and Ruksana, an Indian pavement-dweller whose father sacrifices his own basic needs for his daughters dreams. These girls are each unique, but the obstacles they face are ubiquitous. Like the 66 million girls around the world who dream of going to school what Sokha, Suma, Ruksana and the rest want most is to be students: to learn. And now, by sharing their personal journeys, they have become teachers. Watch Girl Rising and you will see: one girl with courage is a revolution. Panel discussions will follow the 1:00 pm and 3:30 pm screenings and refreshments will be available.
