GirlRising shown at Sacred Heart Greenwich, Thursday May 16

8th grader, Chloe Frelinghuysen, as part of her Making History project, is pleased to invite you to a limited release screening of the exceptional film:

GirlRISING

EDUCATE GIRLS, CHANGE THE WORLD 

a powerful, uplifting film

Thursday, May 16th, 7pm
Convent of The Sacred Heart Theater

GirlRising journeys around the globe to witness the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. From Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins, Girl Rising spotlights the stories of unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances. It captures their dreams, their voices, and their remarkable lives.  An all-star cast including Cate Blanchett, Selena Gomez, Anne Hathaway, Selma Hayek, Alicia Keys, Chloe Moretz, Liam Neeson, Meryl Streep, and Kerry Washington all contribute voice performances to the film, which features original music from Academy Award winner Rachel Portman, in collaboration with Hans Zimmer. The 10×10 organization says, “Big change starts small. The first step toward success is simple: pass it on,” this is our time to take part in helping our sisters who are in need!

Chloe was given special permission to screen the film at Sacred Heart even though it is out in limited release in theaters at this time.
We hope you will be able to make it; feel free to invite family members and friends.

We recommend the film for students in grades 7-12.  Younger students should be accompanied by a parent.
