2013 Thin Line Film Fest - Get Together Girls
February 11, 2013
214 West Hickory Street , Denton, TX
$6 - $10
Filmmaker Vanessa Crocini in attendance.
In Ngong, less than 10 miles away from the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, an Italian woman, Grace Orsolato, has founded a Community Based Organization after leaving her job in Italy. Get Together Girls focuses on teaching former street girls to be self reliant and support themselves and their families through fashion and creativity, learning all the manual skills that the tailoring projects requires. Among the peaceful environment of Anita's Home, the rehabilitation center where the girls lived during their childhood, the girls and Grace deal with the colorful and creative activities of GtoG together with the cultural differences and the struggles and fears in their daily lives, always carrying with themselves the will and the awareness that they can hope and aim for a better future and finding the joy and the satisfaction to be able to create something unique together and being appreciated for what they are now with the awareness of what they lived once. Get Together Girls Collection is for them the bridge into a new life.
Duration: 76 mins
Director/Producer: Vanessa Crocini
