Documentary 'A Powerful Noise' will be shown Sunday, 6:30 p.m., at San Juan Island Library

Soroptimist International of Friday Harbor and Friends of the San Juan Island Library are co-sponsoring a free showing of the award -winning, inspiring documentary “A Powerful Noise,” Sunday, 6:30 p.m., at the library, 1010 Guard St.

"This film will move and inspire our community with its incredible story and cinematography," Soroptimist Marie DiCristina said.

"A Powerful Noise" takes the viewer inside the lives of three women — a girls' education crusader from Mali, an HIV-positive widow from Vietnam, and a peacemaking survivor of the war in Bosnia — who each overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to bring lasting solutions to their communities.

This film won awards at the Tribeca Film Festival, St. Louis International and Silverdocs/Discovery Channel, and others.
