SONITA
Part of "Films About the Global Refugee Crisis"




Directed by Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami

Germany, Switzerland, Iran | 2015 | 91 min. | English, Farsi & Dari with English subtitles

 

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, Sonita tells the story of an 18 year old Afghan girl living as a refugee in a shelter in Tehran, who dreams of being a famous rapper. In Iran she gets counseling for the traumas she has suffered and guidance in shaping her future. But women aren't allowed to sing in Iran and her family has a very different future planned for her: as a bride she's worth $9,000. In an unconventional twist, Director Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami ends up personally involved in helping Sonita fulfill her dream. The evening also features the short film Refugee Blues by Stephan Bookas, which charts a day in 'the jungle', the recently destroyed refugee camp outside Calais in France.

 

Speaker: Nano Raies, a voice student at Berklee College of Music who is originally from Syria.
