The Athena Film Festival will take place on Barnard College and Columbia University campuses and co-hosted by the Athena Center for Leadership Studies and Women & Hollywood from February 7th to February 10th.
As the closing film, the Festival will be screening a sneak preview of the documentary BRAVE MISS WORLD by Cecilia Peck Voll. The film tells the story of Linor Abargil who was held captive, stabbed, and raped just before winning the Miss World crown. Ten years later Abargil confronts her past while committing herself to anti-rape activism on behalf of other survivors. The film’s director, along with producer & editor Inbal Lessner will be present at the screening for a Q&A.
