Special Screening: SONITA

sonitaComing to NYC’s Rooftop Films tomorrow, Wednesday, July 20: SONITA

Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami’s look at a teenage girl’s unlikely hip-hop aspirations debuted at IDFA, where it claimed an audience award. It came stateside at Sundance, where it claimed both the World Cinema Documentary Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award, and has also screened at Nantucket, Cleveland, True/False, Montclair, Sydney, AFI Docs, and the Human Rights Watch fests, among others.

I profiled the doc before Sundance here.
