Join us for for the screening of an inspirational new film, "Girl Rising", which is part of a global movement for girls’ education, at the Rafael in San Rafael on Thurs, March 07, 2013, at 4:30 pm. Meet in the lobby at 4:15. Check out the trailer:
Here’s some background on "Girl Rising": Directed by Academy Award nominated Richard Robbins, it tells the stories of 9 girls from around the world who face and overcome unbelievable obstacles on the path to getting an education. Each girl’s story was written by an acclaimed writer from her native country and is narrated by actresses such as Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Selena Gomez, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keys and others. The cinematography is stunning and I really am looking forward to seeing and sharing the film. The film is rated PG 13, it is tastefully done, with only allusions to some of the hardships and obstacles to education that many girls endure.
