Big Sonia

Movie Screening Event and Talkback

Sunday, November 11th, 2018

Movie at 10:30 AM | Talkback at 12:00 PM

Bow Tie Cinema, 1301 N. Boulevard, Richmond VA

Ways and Means committee is excited to announce that Congregation Or Atid will be hosting a showing of the movie, Big Sonia on Sunday November 11th. 

In the last store in a defunct shopping mall, 91-year-old Sonia Warshawski—great-grandmother, businesswoman, and Holocaust survivor—runs the tailor shop she’s owned for more than thirty years. But when she’s served an eviction notice, the specter of retirement prompts Sonia to revisit her harrowing past as a refugee and witness to genocide. A poignant story of generational trauma and healing, Big Sonia also offers a laugh-out-loud-funny portrait of the power of love to triumph over bigotry, and the power of truth-telling to heal us all.

After the movie, join our panel of special guests for a talkback discussion from 12:00-1:00 PM.  We will examine the film's commentary about approaching injustice, and discuss how we can promote inclusivity and tolerance in our own community.
