BPA Media Instructor “Matters”

BPA Media Instructor Nuala Cabral is a jack of all trades. In addition to her teaching, she is also a filmmaker who actively supports the anti-street harassment movement and is the co-founder of a Philadelphia-based media literacy project, FAAN Mail.

Walking  Home, one of Cabrals’ more recent films, won the “Speaking Out Award” at the Media That Matters festival in New York City .  This festival is a premiere showcase for short films that inspire action on the most important topics relating to both local and global communities.  It’s only natural that Cabral’s poetic film about street harassment (from the unique perspective of women who are harassed) was selected for this honorable project.

“Walking Home” will be screened in NYC on Thursday, October 27 at the SVA Theatre.

Sending her a big congratulations for this honor!
