TO EDUCATE A GIRL: Documentary Screening and Conversation with the Film Makers

Documentary Screening and Conversation with the Film Makers

Thursday, March 8, 2012 - INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
Milbank Chapel 6-8pm

Film Makers Frederick Rendina and Oren Rudavsky will attend the screening and be available for a conversation with the audience. About the film: In 2000, 110 million children in the world were not in school—two thirds of them were girls. In 2010, filmmakers Frederick Rendina and Oren Rudavsky traveled to Nepal and Uganda, two countries emerging from conflict and struggling with poverty, to find the answer to one question: What does it take to educate a girl? Framed by the United Nations global initiative to provide equal access to education for girls by 2015, To Educate a Girl takes a ground-up and visually stunning view of that effort through the eyes of girls out of school, starting school or fighting against the odds to stay in school.
