Screening of SONITA
presented with Telluride Mountainfilm

A film by Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami
2015 | Iran/Germany/Switzerland | 91 minutes | English/Farsi, subtitles

DUE TO THE CURRENT WEATHER CONDITIONS TONIGHT'S SCREENING HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY, APRIL 21 AT 7 PM.

Southampton Arts Center will co-present SONITA, directed by Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami, on Friday, March 10 at 7 pm, with Telluride Mountainfilm Festival. SONITA made its North American Premiere in the World Cinema Documentary Competition at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, winning both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award in the World Cinema Documentary Competition. The film initially premiered at the International Documentary Film Festival, Amsterdam (IDFA), winning both the Audience Award and DOC U Award, and led the poll of audience favorites right from the start of the festival.

Sonita, an 18-year-old Afghan refugee in Iran, thinks of Michael Jackson and Rihanna as her spiritual parents and dreams of becoming a big-name rapper. For the time being, her only fans are the other teenage girls in a Tehran shelter. And her family has a very different future planned for her: as a bride she's worth $9,000. Director Maghami poignantly shifts from observer to participant altering expectations, as Sonita's story unfolds in an intimate and joyful portrait.

"Sonita's beats are as solid as stones, her rhymes are fierce, and her videos are a piercing howl against the constant injustice, fear, and sexism women must endure," writes the Sundance Jury, "SONITA highlights the rarely seen intricacies and shifting contrasts of Iranian society through the lens of an artist who is defining the next generation."  

SONITA was made with the help of WMM's internationally recognized Production Assistance Program, and was produced by Tag/Traum Filmproduktion.
