A POWERFUL NOISE in theatres nationwide March 5, 2009

“A Powerful Noise” is much more than just a film. It is a catalyst for change and a compelling reminder that the solution to global poverty and injustice lies in the ability of women and girls to have a voice in their societies. This is why Tom and I made “A Powerful Noise” and we are extremely pleased that it is helping ignite such an important movement.

Now is your chance to join us in recognizing the millions of powerful women like Hanh, Nada and Jacqueline who lead daily battles to improve their communities. On Thursday, March 5, 2009, in honor of International Women’s Day, please encourage every woman – and man! – you know to attend A POWERFUL NOISE Live in movie theatres across the United States. This special one-night event will feature our documentary, “A Powerful Noise,” followed by a town hall discussion with leading experts and celebrity activists simulcast live from New York to 440 movie theatres nationwide.

A POWERFUL NOISE Live is more than a night out at the movies, it’s a movement coming of age,” says Dr. Helene Gayle, president and CEO of the global poverty-fighting organization CARE. “You’ll be entertained but more importantly, when the lights go on, you’ll be energized with a better understanding of what you can do to empower women and girls around the world.”

A POWERFUL NOISE Live is presented by CARE, ONE and NCM Fathom during the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women. Tickets go on sale January 30th.
