Popcorn Pop-up Cinema: Girl Rising

For something thought-provoking, watch this film telling the tragic tales of nine girls, each from different parts of the world facing a gruesome injustice. Hear, for yourself, how arranged marriages, child slavery, and other corruptive exploitation forms are still very much prevalent in many societies. Despite their struggles, Girl Rising is very much about these brave girls rising to the occasion and breaking barriers, thus making a true difference in their lives.
Pop-up Cinema: Girl Rising will be happening at Workcentral Singapore on Tuesday, August 24 2018 from 6.45pm – 9.15pm. Click here to purchase tickets.
