A few months ago I started reading Half the Sky, a book that documents the stories of several young girls who were subjected to sex trafficking and calls us all (the readers) to action against these crimes. I’m still reading it because I have to take it in doses. It’s beautifully heartbreaking. Around the same time that I started reading this book, I stumbled upon the trailer for Girl Rising:
I watched it at least ten times that day and was so upset when I found out it was debuting at Sundance and I had just barely missed it. However, the good news was the option to apply to have the film shown in my town. So, I sent the trailer over to one of my dearest friends, and the woman I knew could make it happen, Julia Knecht. And make it happen she did, we have a slot for April 4th at the Wynnsong here in Provo.
Here’s the catch, we need 100 people to reserve tickets before we can solidify the screening. It’s only $10, and if we don’t reach 100 people, you get your money back. Kind of like Kickstarter, but you get to see an amazing film if we reach the goal. So, if you like life-changing things, if you’re bored, if you feel like something has been missing in your life, sign up. I promise you it will be worth it.
