Join the Development Policy Centre and Femili PNG on November 14 for a screening of the incredible film, Power Meri.

Power Meri follows Papua New Guinea’s first national women’s rugby league team, the PNG Orchids, on their journey to the 2017 World Cup in Australia. These trailblazers must beat not only the sporting competition, but also intense sexism, a lack of funding, and national prejudice to reach their biggest stage yet.

From the roughest suburbs of Port Moresby to the lush PNG highlands, Power Meri takes viewers on a captivating journey through rarely-seen corners of PNG, guided by young Papua New Guinean women who dream of changing their country through sport.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with PNG Orchids Head Coach, former Kumul, and Canberra Raiders premiership player, David Westley.

All money raised will support Femili PNG to continue to provide much needed support to survivors of family and sexual violence in Papua New Guinea.
