Girl Rising is a beautiful film about the power of educating girls. After gaining momentum with on-demand screenings organized through the website Gathr, it was picked up by Regal Cinemas. Beginning today, it will be available in 150 theaters across the country for a one-week engagement. Girl Rising is not a documentary, nor fiction, but rather a powerful piece of storytelling that follows nine real girls, each of whom has overcome common barriers to education. The filmmakers asked award-winning writers to each create a vignette about the girl from her own country. Those stories were then used as the screenplay and are narrated by famous actresses. And in the film, each girl, not a professional, acts out her own story. Watch now to find out more.
