Marie’s video about the film “Girl Rising”

This short clip made just after Marie’s visit to the La Rinconada gold mines in Peru, describes her meeting with 14-year-old Senna, the child laborer, budding poet, and Marie’s subject for the film “Girl Rising.” In 2011, Marie visited the mines, which are situated under a glacier 18,000 feet up in the Peruvian Andes. It was a grueling trip, made in subzero temperatures and requiring a slow ascent with the aid of guides. She has visited Senna regularly after the film premiered in New York in March of 2012.  The film has now been shown throughout the world in movie houses as well as on CNN. Very soon, it will be available in DVD format.
