GIRL RISING A Powerful Film About Female Education
Norwalk Public Library and Norwalk Education Foundation (NEF) would like to inform you that the documentary Girl Rising will debut on CNN, Sunday, June 16th at 9:00 p.m.
This documentary-narrative hybrid is about nine extraordinary girls from around the world and the opportunities afforded them by education. Each segment stars a real girl acting out an episode from her own life. The scripts were written by novelists from the girls' home countries—Afghanistan, Cambodia, Haiti, Peru—to name a few. Actresses Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Kerry Washington and others narrate the film.
This is a non-traditional model, but a film you won't want to miss!
