Brave Girl Rising – Film Premiere
This International Women’s Day, Girl Rising, the non-profit behind the global campaign for girls’ education and empowerment, debuts a powerful new film titled Brave Girl Rising. Made in collaboration with the International Rescue Committee and filmed in one of the largest refugee camps in the world, Brave Girl Rising tells how a courageous girl, inspired by the magical dreams of her mother and the sisterhood of her friends, succeeds in getting the education she deserves.
Written by poet laureate Warsan Shire and voiced by Tessa Thompson and Golden Globe winner David Oyelowo, this short film is a testament to how hope and love can propel us beyond even the bleakest of circumstances.
Following the screening there will be a panel featuring the CEO of Girl Rising, Christina Lowery, and Executive Director of IRC Seattle Nicky Smith. The panel will be moderated by Kristen Dailey, Executive Director of Global Washington.
