Oren Rudavsky, Producer/Director, "To Educate a Girl," http://www.toeducateagirl.com/ In 2000, 110 million children in the world were not in school—two thirds of them were girls. In 2010, filmmakers Frederick Rendina and Oren Rudavsky traveled to Nepal and Uganda, two countries emerging from conflict and struggling with poverty, to find the answer to one question: What does it take to educate a girl? The film screens at the Mill Valley Film Festival at the Rafael Film Center, Oct. 16, 3:45 PM; Judy Irola Producer/Director, also has a film in the closing weekend of the MVFF: "Niger ’66, A Peace Corps Diary," Friday, Oct. 15, 7 PM at the Rafael Film Ctr. & Sun., Oct. 17, 2:30 PM at Sequoia in Mill Valley. Visit mvff.org. After serving two years in the Peace Corps in Niger, Africa (1966-68) Irola returned to San Francisco where she went to work for KQED-TV in their documentary film unit. Now she is an esteemed professor at the University of Southern CA, where she holds the Conrad Hall Chair in Cinematography (endowed by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg) at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts.
