Girl Rising Film Screening at Mae Wilson on March 8
We are very excited to announce that the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council, in partnership with the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre and World Vision Canada, is bringing CNN Film's "Girl Rising" documentary to the Mae Wilson theatre on International Women’s Day (Sunday, March 8, 2015).
Directed by Academy Award nominee Richard Robbins, Girl Rising “tells the stories of girls across the globe and highlights the power of education to change the world. The stories are told with the help of celebrated writers and renowned actresses such as Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett and Selena Gomez.”
It’s a fight that Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai has literally risked her life for as 66 million girls around the world still do not have access to schooling. Yet, educating a girl not only benefits her personally, it greatly impacts her community as the cycle of poverty can be broken through her education in just one generation!
The MPAA has rated the film PG-13 for "for thematic material including disturbing images."
Doors open for the screening at 2:30 PM and the film begins at 3:30 PM, with refreshments to follow.
This event is free and tickets are NOT required, however, we are asking that people please RSVP at https://girlrisingmj.eventbrite.ca to help us determine what the turnout may be.
