Girl Rising (PG-13) is an innovative new feature film about the power of education to change a girl – and the world. The film spotlights unforgettable girls like Sokha, an 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 daughter’s dreams. Each girls story is told with its own style, and all with profound resonance. These girls are unique, but the obstacles they faced 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.
This showing is brought to you by Africa's Tomorrow, AAUW, and the CHS Spanish Club. Donations are welcomed and will be used to further the cause of education for girls.
