Special Screening and Discussion of "A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness"

YPFP has reserved 15 free tickets for members to attend a special screening of the Oscar® nominated HBO Documentary "A Girl in the River: the Price of Forgiveness" that will take place at the Asia Society on Thursday, February 18th from 6:30 to 8:15 p.m. The film will be followed by a conversation with the Academy Award-winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, moderated by author and journalist Kati Marton.

"A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness" is the story of Saba, an 18-year-old Pakistani woman who is condemned to death for falling in love, but lives to tell the tale. Filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy follows this tale as it unfolds, revealing some the complex forces at work in a country where more than 1000 women are killed in the name of “honor” every year.

Seating is limited. Please RSVP by February 12th to reserve your spot.
