On Tuesday, November 12 at 6pm we will be screening the Athena Global Shorts at 56 minute collection of four films directed by talented filmmakers that played at the Athena Film Festival.
The program was launched in 2013 in collaboration with UN Women, the UN organization established in 2010 as a global champion for women and girls. The films celebrate the power, audacity and creativity of women leaders and showcase the innumerable ways women lead in their countries and communities. By screening them to audiences around the globe, we hope to stimulate robust conversations about the importance of women’s leadership.
Admission is FREE, but Registration is Required. Click Here to register through eventbrite.
Location: BARNARD COLLEGE DIANA CENTER, ROOM LL104

She will also share the trailer to the feature documentary, How to Lose Your Virginity which will have its US Premiere in NYC at DOC NYC on Nov. 17, 2013.
