Conscientious Projector: A Powerful Noise

Celebrate World Fair Trade Day in Pasadena by attending a free screening at The Armory Center for the Arts with Conscientious Projector!

Voices for Women’s Rights Sounding A Powerful Noise

The burgeoning international women’s empowerment movement is personified in the stories of three extraordinary women from different parts of the world in A Powerful Noise, this month’s Conscientious Projector selection, screening on Thursday, May 13, 7 p.m. at The Armory Center for the Arts. From executive producer Sheila C. Johnson, Black Entertainment Television co-founder and Global Ambassador for the humanitarian organization CARE, this beautifully-made, moving film shows how these inspiring women–a young HIV-positive widow from Vietnam, a former refugee and survivor of the war in Bosnia, and an advocate for girls’ education in Mali–rise above their own desperate circumstances to become leaders in the fight against poverty and discrimination in their communities and advance the causes of justice and opportunity for women and girls.

A community discussion with Fair Trade Pasadena follows the film. The Armory is located at 145 N. Raymond in Old Pasadena. Admission is free and the facility is accessible to disabled persons. For more information, contact Marty Coleman at 626.792.4941 or visit and watch a trailer at
