Girl Rising Screened at Green Vale School

May 1, 2013

The Parents’ Association at Green Vale hosted a screening of Girl Rising this morning for parents and students in grades six through nine. The film was introduced by Green Vale parent Isobel Coleman, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, who was an advisor to the film’s producers for several years. Her son Cullen, class of 2009, was also involved in the film’s production as a research intern for the Documentary Group in the summer of 2010.

Directed by Academy Award nominee Richard Robbins, Girl Rising tells the stories of 9 extraordinary girls from 9 countries, written by 9 celebrated writers and narrated by 9 well known actresses. Girl Rising showcases the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to have a positive effect on families, communities and worldwide economies.

Eighth grade student Alex felt “the film is necessary; it focuses on something that needs to be brought to the attention of many others.” Classmate Isabel added, “The film offered us great insight into things that, for us in America, we just don’t hear about, especially at our age.”
