Sonita - at Frome Film Club
 

SONITA
Director: Rokhsareh Ghaemmaghami, Iran 2016, 91 minutes, Cert PG

Sonita is a smart, funny and resourceful teenage Afghan refugee who longs to be a rapper – but in patriarchal Iran women are forbidden by law to sing, let alone rap. When her mother starts to negotiate a dowry from the family of an older man, and to bring her back to Afghanistan, Sonita’s response is to post a defiant rap about marital slavery on YouTube and watch it go viral. A warm, uplifting documentary that turns rescue attempt as director Ghaemmaghami finds herself crossing the line from observer to participant.

“It’s impossible not to be swept along by the powerful tide of Sonita’s story” Leslie Felperin, Guardian
