Catalytic Content and the Power of Storytelling: How Girl Rising changes minds
By Girl Rising
Girl Rising has partnered with the International Rescue Committee and Citi to create a film and campaign around the story of one brave young girl named Nasro, whose daily life is a fight to get the education she deserves. The film, Brave Girl Rising, will be released this March on International Women’s Day, and is just one of many ways Girl Rising, the IRC, and Citi are working to ensure girls everywhere on the planet have access to safe schooling. In our previous blog posts, we explained why we are telling the story of Nasro and introduced you to Warsan Shire, the poet who is writing the screenplay. Now we’re going to take a step back and talk about why we make films the way we do--something we call catalytic content.
