Event Details

Celebrate the last Community Cinema screening of the year! We're screening Solar Mamas, an inspiring film about women in the most challenging of circumstances upturning the status quo and using education to transform their lives and communities.


Join us after the screening for a free Wine Reception hosted by SF Environment across the street from the Library in the Eco-Center Gallery on 11 Grove St. We'll walk over together at 7:45pm and continue the conversation over drinks.

(It's free and proof of attendance is required for entry)




Rafea, 30 years old with four children and a husband who is eager to take a third wife, is a Bedouin woman living in a small Jordanian village. She leaves her village for the first time to go to the Barefoot College in India to train to become a solar-energy engineer.


The Barefoot College in India was founded by Bunker Roy to provide knowledge and training to the rural poor to empower them to make their communities self-reliant and sustainable. The solar course at Barefoot College has women from Kenya, Burkina Faso, Columbia, and Guatemala.
