Our Third-Goal Film Series continues with a new selection of films produced by returned volunteers.


Join us in Oakland, Saturday May 3rd at 2:30pm. This installment of the Third-Goal Film Series will be held at one of Oakland's hottest venues, the New Parkway Theater (just five blocks from BART). Order food, get your favorite beer on tap, and take it into the theater, where we'll be showing new selections from RPCV films, focusing on women's empowerment in the developing world.

The Third Goal Film Series is shining a light on issues and people around the world, who typically go unnoticed. We strive to find the very best media, and the most interesting subjects. Our filmmakers have traveled the world to bring you these important stories. A panel discussion with the filmmakers will follow the screening.

Join us for these films on May 3rd and bring a friend. The mission of the Third Goal Film Series is to provide a platform for RPCV's to show our fellow Americans a vision of the greater world.

We are charging a 10 dollar admission for this event to help cover rental costs. All attendees will be eligible for a reduced membership rate with the Northern California Peace Corps Association.


The Films:

Posh Corps
The first installment of Posh Corps played at our previous event. This installment of Posh Corps features two women, Peace Corps Volunteers working in South Africa. As female volunteers, they face special challenges during service, but their resiliency carries them through their struggles, as they strive to build a better future for women in South Africa. This installment of Posh Corps focuses on girls empowerment clubs in South Africa.

Feast And Sacrifice
Feast and Sacrifice is a carefully observed portrait of a Senegalese family living on the ragged edges of globalization. Questions of work, gender, and aspirations emerge as the family prepares for the biggest holiday of the year, the Islamic Feast of the Sacrifice. This film was produced by Clare Major. A local RPCV who served in Senegal. Clare visited her Peace Corps village after service, to document the struggles of her community. A true 'Third-Goal' production.

Rural Role Models
NorcalPCA is excited to have secured the rights to show Rural Role Models. This film was a colaborative project by Peace Corps Gambia Volunteers, and the YMCA. It is a great example of a Peace Corps project that achieves all three goals of Peace Corps.
