Come see GIRL RISING, a fascinating, innovative feature/documentary that tells the true stories of nine remarkable girls who change their destinies through education, from a "pavement-dweller" in India - to a composer in Nepal whose love of music helps her endure forced servitude. Each girl's story is told by a writer from her native country. Leading actors, including Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Liam Neeson, Cate Blanchett, and Selena Gomez narrate the different stories. By sharing their personal journeys, these young women prove that "One girl with courage is a revolution."
