Girl Rising is the culmination of 6 years of work by a team of former journalists from ABC News. They set out to investigate how to end global poverty and what they discovered was a simple elegant truth: That educating girls is the highest-return investment you can make in breaking cycles of poverty. The desire to spread that truth led them to make this film. What you will see is neither documentary nor fiction. Rather, it is an effort to take the stories of real girls far away from here – and the barriers they face to achieving their dreams – and present them in a way that is both moving and personal. Rated PG13, Girl Rising is a touching movie with voice-overs by Meryl Steep, Anne Hathaway, Alicia Keys, and Selena Gomez among others.
