Film screening:  The City of Joy

May 30, 2017 | 6:00 PM

Ashé Power House | 1731 Baronne Street, NOLA

Free and open to the public.

After its successful premiere at the DocNYC film festival, the CITY OF JOY documentary is screening at film festivals across the United States.


The award-winning film, CITY OF JOY, follows the first class of women at a revolutionary leadership center in Congo, weaving their journey with that of the center's founders (2016 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Dr. Denis Muwkege, women's rights activist Christine Schuler-Deschryver, and writer and activist Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues)—three individuals who imagined a place where women who have suffered horrific rape and abuse can heal and become powerful voices of change for their country.
