Join us for a live virtual screening, presented by Rise Up & Care and the Global Social Entrepreneurship VIP, of the film Gira and the Circus of Life (2016) directed by Lili Fialho and Katia Lund. Learn about the story of Vinicius and Junior as they set out to start the “Crescer e Viver”, a circus in the heart of Rio de Janeiro, encouraging people of all ages to participate and inspiring them to hope and dream in a community full of poverty and crime.

Time: 5:00-7:00 p.m. EST
Following the screening will be a Q&A panel with Vinicius and Dr. Kirk Bowman (co-founder of Rise Up & Care and professor at Georgia Tech) where themes brought up in the film will be discussed. Upon registration, you will receive an e-mail with a Bluejeans link to the event.
