A Powerful Noise -- Thursday March 5th

The Brunswick Cinema 10 in Maine, and 450 theaters across the United States are having a 1 night event -- a live screening and post-movie event -- in honor of the new film A Powerful Noise. The film looks like incredibly inspiring as we think about the global women's movement and mother's responsibilities to ourselves, to each other, and to children everywhere. There are resources on the web site for planning future events as well...


Hanh is an HIV-positive widow in Vietnam. Nada, a survivor of the Bosnian war. And Jacqueline works the slums of Bamako, Mali. Three very different lives. Three vastly different worlds. But they share something in common: Power. These women are each overcoming gender barriers to rise up and claim a voice in their societies. Through their empowerment and ability to empower others, Hanh, Nada and Jacqueline are sparking remarkable changes. Fighting AIDS. Rebuilding communities. Educating girls.
