A Powerful Noise
In CARE's A Powerful Noice: The Impact of One Voice, the Power of Many, we meet the leader of a women's raspberry-growers cooperative in Bosnia, talk with the head of a school for young women in Mali, and sit down with an HIV/AIDS community organizer in Vietnam. We listen as Serbian refugee Nada Makovic talks about the hardships—and successes—of working to empower women in a post-conflict setting. We watch as Bui My Hanh bikes across her city to pass out condoms to her people. And, we listen to Jacqueline Dembele, called Madam Urbain, as she sings and dances with her students.
Chosen by dozens of film festivals around the US, and anticipated to be screened in film festivals around the world, A Powerful Noise is a visually rich representation of the strength and courage of women everywhere. As we get to know these three women, we are reminded of the many women working tirelessly for change. Producer Sheila C. Johnson put it best. "It's not about the power of one," she says. "But instead activating the combined power of many both domestically and abroad" that will have an impact.
On March 5th, in honor of International Women’s Day, CARE will host screenings of this captivating documentary in over 450 theaters nationwide. The film will be immediately followed by a town hall discussion with expert and celebrity panelists—including Nicholas Kristof, Christy Turlington Burns, and Dr. Helene Gayle—broadcast from New York City to participating theaters.
