Long Trail School in Dorset, Vt. is pleased to offer a free public viewing of the documentary, ‘Girl Rising.’  This compelling film shares the stories of nine girls from a variety of places in the developing world who achieve their dreams in spite of incredible challenges. This presentation will be held in the Long Trail theater on Thursday, April 24, at 6:30 pm. The film is designed to raise awareness and inspire individuals to act on behalf of every girl. The girls in this film struggle against the cycle of poverty and rise above issues such as domestic slavery and sex trafficking, early marriage and domestic violence. The film inspires us to seek a safe, healthy and productive world for all its inhabitants. Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins uses the narration talents of renowned actors and the moving words of prize-winning authors to give voice to the girls’ stories and this powerful truth:  educating girls can transform families, communities, countries and eventually, the world. ‘Girl Rising’ brings everyone together through its stories about girls and women around the world. Boys and girls, men and women: come and watch this affirming and forceful film. For more information, contact Courtney Callo at 802-867-5717 extension 141 or [email protected]
