Half the Sky Free Screening

On Monday, March 5, 2018 we will be hosting a free screening of the documentary “Half the Sky” at the Berkshire Athenaeum in Pittsfield, MA .

Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide includes a four-hour film broadcast in the United States and abroad, shot in 10 countries: Cambodia, Kenya, India, Sierra Leone, Somaliland, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Liberia and the U.S. Traveling with intrepid reporter Nicholas Kristof and A-list celebrity advocates America Ferrera, Diane Lane, Eva Mendes, Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union and Olivia Wilde, the series introduces women and girls who are living under some of the most difficult circumstances imaginable — and fighting bravely to change them. Their intimate, dramatic and immediate stories of struggle reflect viable and sustainable options for empowerment and offer an actionable blueprint for transformation.

Half the Sky Broadcast partners share background about the process of filming “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide,” including a note on the filming process.

The March 5, 2018 screening will include the first half of the series and a 30 minute panel discussion featuring:

Shirley Edgerton, Rights of Passage and Empowerment (R.O.P.E.)

Talya Kingston, WAM Theater

Jeanet Ingalls, Shout Out Loud Productions
