Girl Rising
Meet nine girls from nine countries facing almost unbeatable odds - to get an education, in this unforgettable feature film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world! Innovative new feature film about the power of education to change a girl, and the world!  Narrated by Salma Hayek, Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, and other A-List actresses.

The film spotlights unforgettable girls like Sokha, an orphan who rises from the dumps of Cambodia to become a star student and an accomplished dancer; Suma, who composes music to help her endure forced servitude in Nepal and today crusades to free others; and Ruksana, an Indian "pavement-dweller" whose father sacrifices his own basic needs for his daughter's dreams. Each girl is paired with a renowned writer from her native country. Edwidge Danticat, Sooni Taraporevala, Aminatta Forna, and others tell the girls' stories, each with its own style, and all with profound resonance.  One girl with courage is a revolution!
