Sonita –  Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami

Don’t miss our screening of Sonita, winner of the World Cinema Documentary Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. The story of Sonita Alizadeh, an 18-year-old Afghan refugee in Iran, who thinks of Michael Jackson and Rihanna as her spiritual parents and dreams of becoming a big name rapper. Her family has a very different future planned for her: as a bride she’s worth $9000.
