The Half the Sky Foundation to Screen The Invisible Red Thread at Berkeley University!

  Image
We are very pleased to announce that The Invisible Red Thread will soon be screening at the University of California Berkeley! On Friday April 12th, the Half the Sky Foundation will be holding a screening on campus, free of admission.

 Image “The purpose of this screening is primarily to raise awareness on campus of the discussion surrounding Chinese orphan care and policy,” says UCB undergrad Nicole Lee, a volunteer at the Half the Sky Foundation. “We’re partnering with a student organization called AdopteeUniversity, which is geared toward adoptee students on campus for mentorship and dialogue. Together, we hope to reach out to students who might be interested in a similar cause and students who would want to get more involved but don’t know where to start. We’re also looking for any students who would want to start a college charter on the UC Berkeley campus so that Half the Sky could partner with college students to make more of a difference in the lives of orphaned children in China.”

  Based in Berkeley, the Half the Sky Foundation is a non-profit organization which establishes orphanages all throughout China to care for abandoned and vulnerable children. While researching potential documentaries, Nicole and Sarah Cramer—the Associate Director Volunteer and Events at Half the Sky—quickly happened upon the award winning documentary and found themes in The Invisible Red Thread to be relevant to their organization. “I think the idea behind the film, following the lives of two Chinese children who were adopted at a young age but now living in completely different parts of the world, is not only unique but also profound and insightful,” says Nicole. “I’m so thankful that Vivian and Shumin have given us viewers the privilege and honor to follow along their lives and journeys, to see how China’s policies are not just political but very deeply personal.”

     We wish them a successful screening! Bon Cinema!

    The first question to hit your head is how to phrase a keyword which is best for a
    business website. Penguin penalized many of the linking methods used by local search engine optimization and Internet marketing companies.
    After reading the page they discovered over the search results, they will move on to an alternative intriguing article.
