Girl Rising: Showcasing the Strength of the Human Spirit and the Power of Education to Change the World.

"Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom."

Nelson Mandela once said that, "education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." So I heard about what looks like it will be a really cool documentary, GIRL RISING, and really wanted to go. It's a film about educating girls, and by doing so, changing the world.

If you're into documentaries, like I am, then you should check it out. The screening is June 10th, at the Water Gardens Spanish Fork 8 and tickets are just $10. Now that I bought tickets, as of this moment, there are only 41 tickets left to this special screening. Awhile back, there was a screening in Salt Lake, but I missed it and decided that the drive (or the Frontrunner train-ride, as it will be) would be worth it.

Also, here is a preview written up in the Salt Lake Deseret News. And another one by Public Radio International. Looks good, right? So come.

Here's the trailer.


Need to grab a tissue? Feel inspired? Well, go buy a ticket. See you there!

Thanks to cjanekendrick for letting me know about this screening.

I watched this documentary in Seattle in April. It was good. I really liked it.
