HALF THE SKY
Thursday, May 1 @ 8PM
Sunday, May 4 @ 6PM
(documentary is split into two parts; see "full description" below for details)
Half the Sky Movement Site
Inspired by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn's groundbreaking book, HALF THE SKY: TURNING OPPRESSION INTO OPPORTUNITY FOR WOMEN WORLDWIDE takes on the central moral challenge of the 21st century: the oppression of women and girls worldwide. Take an unforgettable journey with six actress/advocates and New York Times journalist Kristof to meet some of the most courageous individuals of our time, who are doing extraordinary work to empower women and girls everywhere. These are stories of heartbreaking challenge, dramatic transformation and enduring hope. You will be shocked, outraged, brought to tears. Most important, you will be inspired by the resilience of the human spirit and the capabilities of women and girls to realize their staggering potential.
HALF THE SKY is a passionate call-to-arms, urging us not only to bear witness to the plight of the world's women, but to help to transform their oppression into opportunity. Our future is in the hands of women, everywhere."
The documentary will be split into 2 separate nights, each session being 2 hours:
--Thursday May 1st @ 8:00 pm (covers gender-based violence in Sierra Leone, sex trafficking in Cambodia, education in Vietnam)
--Sunday May 4th @ 5:00 pm (covers maternal mortality and FGM in Somaliland, intergenerational prostitution in India, and economic empowerment in Kenya)
The event is free to the public although donations will be accepted. There will be a brief discussion after the film for those interested and materials for how people can help take action. Sister 2 Sister International, a local nonprofit organization, will have an "adopt a sister" table where people can become sponsors for individual women in Africa who are in need of micro-loan financing. Sponsors will be able to see pictures and read short biographies of the women and personally choose who they support. In addition there will be artisan jewelry and crafts for sale with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the women artists from Africa and Central America who made them.
THE NEW BLACK
Monday, May 12th @ 7:30PM
THE NEW BLACK is the final feature in a six-film Community Cinema collaboration with Independent Lens.
The New Black is a documentary that tells the story of how the African-American community is grappling with the gay rights issue in light of the recent gay marriage movement and the fight over civil rights. The film documents activists, families and clergy on both sides of the campaign to legalize gay marriage and examines homophobia in the black community's institutional pillar-the black church and reveals the Christian right wing's strategy of exploiting this phenomenon in order to pursue an anti-gay political agenda. The New Black takes viewers into the pews and onto the streets and provides a seat at the kitchen table as it tells the story of the historic fight to win marriage equality in Maryland and charts the evolution of this divisive issue within the black community.
PEDAL-DRIVEN: A BIKEUMENTARY
Tuesday, May 13 @ 6PM
In the pristine forests above Leavenworth, Washington, there exists a world of hidden trailheads and clandestine trails. Here a sect of outdoor enthusiasts, extreme mountain bikers called freeriders, have gone underground. They are the skate punks of the forest, unwelcome and under pressure to leave. The locations of their trails are carefully guarded secrets and the riders who ride them keep constant vigil, on the lookout for US Forest Service rangers.
PEDAL-DRIVEN is a non-profit documentary made in association with IMBA and in partnership with the United States Forest service that examines the shared philosophies of stewardship and sustainability from both sides and, ultimately, offers examples of the ways in which opposing factions can find common ground in defense of
the lands that belong to us all.
Tuesday, May 20 @ 7:30PM
The Nyanya Project Site
Rwanda's first and only all women's drumming troupe is called Ingoma Nshya. Made up of women from both sides of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, the troupe offers a place of support, healing and reconciliation. When the group decides to partner with two young American entrepreneurs, Jennie Dundas and Alexis Miesen of Brooklyn's Blue Marble Ice Cream, and open Rwanda's first ever ice cream shop, these remarkable Rwandan women embark on a journey of independence, peace and possibility. SWEET DREAMS interweaves intimate, heart-wrenching stories with joyous and powerful music to present a moving portrait of a country in transition.
Sponsored by The Nyanya Project
The Nyanya Project is a registered 501(c) (3) that trains new skills to African grandmothers who are raising grandchildren orphaned by AIDS in Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania. Founded in 2008, TNP has trained more than 300 grandmothers who are now earning additional income to sustain their families with education, clothing, better diets and health care. In Nairobi's Kibera slums, a preschool started by the grandmothers five years ago is now completely sustainable. In Rwanda, grandmothers are trained in agricultural projects like mushroom and pepper growing in the hills outside of Kigali. Grandmothers in all three countries meet at least twice a month and find great support amongst women sharing the same challenges. "Before I was afraid to speak up. Now I am not." "Today when I walk my grandchildren to school, I know that in the future my name will be lifted."
