Reel Feminism: Desert Flower

July 22, 2013

Reel Feminism Banner

Our film for July is Desert Flower, the terrific, moving, real-life story of Somali supermodel Waris Dirie. Please be aware, the film deals heavily with the topic of female circumcision.

Please join us on July 31 for the story of Dirie’s exodus from Somalia, rise to international supermodel stardom, and awakening as a women’s rights activist. For more information on Dirie’s continued efforts to end the practice of female circumcision, please visit the Desert Flower Foundation.

Come down to the Clinton Street Theatre on Wednesday, July 31st at 7pm for a screening of Desert Flower with discussion to follow. Admission is $5-10, with anything over $5 going directly to support In Other Words.

For more information, RSVP on Facebook and join the In Other Words presents: Reel Feminism group.
