We are very proud to support the mandate of UN Women and UN Women’s HeForShe movement through the release of 'The Light of the Moon'.

The UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of UN Women, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka introduced the film at our theatrical premiere in New York City on Nov 1, 2017.

The filmmaking team supports UN Women in all of their endeavors and hope our collaboration will further their objective to end violence against women and girls around the world.

UN Women is the UN organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide.

It works globally to make the vision of the Sustainable Development Goals a reality for women and girls and stands behind women’s equal participation in all aspects of life.

The HeForShe solidarity movement for gender equality provides a systematic approach and targeted platform where a global audience can engage and become change agents for the achievement of gender equality in our lifetime.

This requires an innovative, inclusive approach that mobilizes people of every gender identity and expression as advocates, and acknowledges the ways that we all benefit from this equality.
