The Flynn is pleased to be the host site of Community Cinema. Community Cinema is a community outreach offshoot of the PBS Series Independent Lens, which broadcasts different documentary films each month. The screenings held here will be 60-minute ‘preview’ versions of these films, followed by a community forum or panel discussion.
ABOUT THIS FILM:
By Jehane Noujaim
Welcome to India's Barefoot College, founded by Bunker Roy to provide rural women living in poverty with an education that empowers them to make their communities self-reliant and sustainable. Rafea—a 30-year-old Jordanian mother of four—is traveling outside of her village for the first time to attend Barefoot's solar engineering program. Once there, she will join women like her from Guatemala, Kenya, Burkina Faso, and Colombia to learn concrete skills to change their communities.
This project is a partnership of the Flynn Center, Vermont Public Television, and the OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) at the University of Vermont.
