The film, which plays everywhere at 7:30 p.m. local time, explores major problems facing women worldwide, including sex trafficking, violence against women, and maternal mortality. India.Arie performs music in the film and actress Marisa Tomei will be premiering a short film she co-directed, based on a true story, about a teenager from a small village in Ethiopia who overcomes sexual violence. “Half The Sky” will surely be a heavy film — but then again, this is half the world’s population we’re talking about.
