Fort Follies Presents: “Free to Run” Film Screening + Discussion

August 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join the Fort Follies for a screening of the film, “Free to Run” and Q&A afterwards with Zeinab Rezaie. This documentary of the organization Free to Run’s mission tells the stories of women using sport to transform the world around them. These women include Zeinab and Zahra, two women who represent the spirit of so many other women in Afghanistan who believe in education and progress. Despite balancing her degree with a job to help fund her studies, Zeinab found Free to Run sessions an invaluable way to stay motivated and push her out of her comfort zone. She found the strength to take on not only multiple marathons, but also challenge the status quo, changing perceptions of what women can do in her home country.
