Join the Round Rock Public Library for the 2012-2013 season of Community Cinema. All screenings are free and open to the public.

Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide

This landmark documentary miniseries (based on the bestselling book of the same name by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn) follows six actress-advocates — America Ferrera, Diane Lane, Eva Mendes, Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union, and Olivia Wilde — as they travel to Africa and Asia and meet inspiring, courageous individuals who are confronting oppression and developing real, meaningful solutions through health care, education, and economic empowerment for women and girls.

Community Cinema is a groundbreaking public education and civic engagement initiative featuring monthly screenings of films from Independent Lens. Every month between September through May, the Round Rock Public Library will host a free film screening followed by a panel discussion on the topic of the film. Community Cinema brings together leading organizations, community members and public television stations to learn, discuss and get involved in today's critical social issues.
