Stimulus Movie Screening: Girl Rising
Thursday April 4 2013, 6:00pm until 9:00pm
Last year, Stimulus brought you the screening of the ground-breaking documentary Miss Representation. This year, we are joining a global campaign to educate and empower girls around the world and we need the support of our amazing community.
At the center of this campaign is a beautiful and important film. Girl Rising tells the stories of 9 remarkable girls from around the world, who are striving beyond circumstance, pushing past limits and demonstrating the extraordinary strength of the human spirit to overcome the odds. Yet it also carries a powerful message: if we educate girls, we can change the future of some 66 million girls around the world who today only dream of going to school. The film is by an Academy Award nominated director (Richard Robbins) and is narrated by a cast of great actresses, including Meryl Streep, Kerry Washington, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keys, and others. The cinematography is stunning and we are excited to view this film and to be involved in a global effort for girls’ education with our amazing Stimulus family.
