Girl Rising

Screening on Saturday October 20 at 1pm.

PG-13 | 1h 41min | Documentary , Drama | English subtitles –

Stories of nine girls from developing countries (including Cambodia) show them overcoming great obstacles to obtain an education and change their fates.

Illuminating and ultimately hopeful, despite the horrible circumstances depicted, “Girl Rising” stands as a testament to the power of information.

‘Advocacy Cinema’ has found a new, strong standard-bearer in Girl Rising; one hopes it drives the forceful change needed in our global community as powerfully as it represents a creative shift in the genre.
