Hi All,


I'm writing from Women Make Movies, the leading nonprofit distributor of
films by and about women. I thought the members of this listserv would
be interested in our newest release, I AM A GIRL, a captivating
educational resource. Nominated for four Australian Academy Awards
including Best Documentary and Best Director, I AM A GIRL is an
inspirational feature length documentary that paints a clear picture of
the reality of what it means to be a girl in the 21st century. To
celebrate this release, WMM is offering a special promotion of 50% off a
related collection when you buy I AM A GIRL at list price.*


I'm including some additional info on I AM A GIRL and the related
special offer. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and
thanks as always for supporting independent women filmmakers!




There is a group of people in the world today who are more persecuted
than anyone else, but they are not political or religious activists.
They are girls. Being born a girl means you are more likely to be
subjected to violence, disease, poverty and disadvantage than any other
group on Earth. 

In I AM A GIRL, we meet 14-year-old Kimsey from Cambodia, forced to sell
her virginity at 12; Aziza from Afghanistan, who will be shot if she
goes to school; Breani, a teen living in a ghetto of NYC and dreaming of
stardom; Katie from Australia, who is recovering from a suicide attempt;
Habiba from Cameroon, betrothed to a man 20 years her senior; and Manu
from Papua New Guinea, about to become a mother at 14 following her
first sexual encounter. As they come of age in the way their culture
dictates, we see remarkable heart-warming stories of resilience, bravery
and humor.
