International Women’s Day

Every year on 8th March, International Women’s Day is recognised globally.

In celebration of International Women’s Day, Dendy cinemas are having a special preview screening for the movie ‘Mary Magdalene’ in locations across Australia.

The movie tells the story of Mary Magdalene and stars Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix. Below is a synopsis of the movie:

Set in the Holy Land in the first century C.E., a young woman leaves her small fishing village and traditional family behind to join a radical, new social movement. At its head is a charismatic leader, Jesus of Nazareth, who promises that the world is changing. Mary is searching for a new way of living, and an authenticity that is denied her by the rigid hierarchies of the day. As the notoriety of the group spread and more are drawn to follow Jesus’ inspirational message, Mary’s spiritual journey places her at the heart of a story that will lead to the capital city of Jerusalem, where she must confront the reality of Jesus’ destiny and her own place within it.[1]

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is #PRESSFORPROGRESS. Now, more than ever, there’s a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity.[2]
