Girl Rising (film)

Saturday 1st Mar 2014

GIRL RISINGIn 2012 Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Taliban for trying to go to school. Just like Malala, 66 million girls worldwide are currently being denied a basic education, mostly as a result of poverty and gender norms. Part of the TAKE ONE ACTION film festival and with voiceover from Selena Gomez, Alicia Keys, Meryl Streep and Liam Neeson, this spirited, colourful and moving film pairs nine (extra)ordinary girls from all corners of the globe with acclaimed writers and actors to tell how they faced down and overcame all-too-common barriers to education for girls. Suitable for S3 and above. "Illuminating and hopeful" Los Angeles Times There will be a Q&A session with Take One Action staff after the film. Directed By: Richard Robbins PG-13, 101 min.
