Girl Rising, a new feature-length film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world, will be screened at SCH Academy in the opening week of the film’s release. The film follows a group of remarkable young girls from around the world, born into unforgiving circumstances, pursuing their education, and attempting to create a better future for themselves.
The film is the heart of 10×10’s global action campaign designed to inspire individuals to take action for girls internationally. Its goal is to educate girls in order to dramatically improve the well-being of their families, their communities, and their countries. 10×10 partners with forward-thinking nonprofits, celebrities, policy leaders, corporations, and concerned citizens to build a global movement to demand equal opportunity for girls. Girl Rising is directed by Academy Award-nominated Richard E. Robbins with voice performances by Meryl Streep, Priyanka Chopra, Alicia Keys, Kerry Washington, Selena Gomez, and other acclaimed actors. For more information, see: www.10x10act.org/girl-rising.
