FOLLOWING FOUR WOMEN USING ART TO CREATE CHANGE GLOBALLY
COMING TO OUR AREA SOON DETAILS TO BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY
Zonta will host a community screening of the award-winning documentary film LITTLE STONES. Little Stones follows Brazilian graffiti artist Panmela Castro, Senegalese rap-singer Sister Fa, Indian dance therapist Sohini Chakraborty, and fashion designer Anna Taylor as they use their art to combat violence against women and to empower women and girls globally.
We will have LITTLE STONES video on Thursday, Oct 18th 6:30-8:30 at The Iconica Social Club in Northampton, 1 Amber Ln, and anyone can come there to watch it (~25 people at most). We will have information about Zonta International there for you if you’d like.
Little Stones unites the personal narratives of four women around the world using art to create positive change in their communities. From a graffiti artist speaking out against domestic violence in the favelas of Brazil to a dancer rehabilitating sex-trafficking survivors in India, each of these women is contributing a stone to the mosaic of the women’s movement through their art.
This 87-minute documentary directed by EMMY® Award-winning filmmaker Sophia Kruz has been screened over 70 times globally, including at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, and on capitol hill for members of congress. LITTLE STONES won Best Documentary at the Vail Film Festival, Best Foreign Documentary at the Female Eye Film Festival, Best of Festival at the Zonta Film Festival, the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival, the Humanitarian Award at DOCUTAH, and an Award of Excellence from Impact Docs.
