Girl Rising is a powerful feature film by Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world.
Girl Rising spotlights the stories of nine unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances. Girls like Sokha, an orphan who rises from a life in the garbage dump in Phnom Penh, Cambodia to become a star student and an accomplished dancer; Suma, who writes songs that help her endure forced servitude in Nepal and today crusades to free others; and Ruksana, an Indian “pavement-dweller” whose father sacrifices his own basic needs for his daughter’s dreams.
These stories are narrated by celebrated actresses: Cate Blanchett, Priyanka Chopra, Selena Gomez, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek , Alicia Keys, Chloë Moretz, Freida Pinto, Meryl Streep, and Kerry Washington. Original music from Academy Award-winner Rachel Portman and Lorne Balfe.
