BendFilm & World Muse Present: DAUGHTERS OF THE FOREST

Filmmaker in Attendance!

On Wednesday, February 8th at 6:45pm at McMenamins Old St. Francis Theater, BendFilm and World Muse will present a powerful documentary from the 2016 film festival. Director Samantha Grant will be present for the screening. The film is a fitting prelude to the 2017 MUSE Conference since Grant and World Muse founder Amanda Steurmer share a passion for social change and empowering women and girls. 

DAUGHTERS OF THE FOREST (54 min) follows a small group of girls who attend a radical high school in the untamed wilds of the Mbaracayú Reserve in rural Paraguay. Filmed over the course of seven years, the documentary offers a rare glimpse into a disappearing world where timid girls grow into brave young women who study their threatened forest and envision a better future for themselves.

Tickets are $12 and $7 for BendFilm and Muse members (enter Member # for your "Promotion Code")
