LITTLE STONES” Award-Winning Documentary

Documentary Screening, LITTLE STONES, Global Women's Empowerment through Film and ArtFollowing 4 women using ART to create change globally”
Several of our members go to UN CSW
every year at the 1st full week in March.
This is one that we all watched, and we used this event at our 2018-2019 meeting! Featured Artists on 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.

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.
