New View Film Series: "Sonita"

Eidson-Duckwall Recital Hall
Room 140

Sonita follows the inspiring story of how a young Afghani refugee in Iran channels her frustrations and seizes her destiny through music after her family tries to sell her into a marriage. Through this film, the audience is provided insight into the transformative power of art, and how art may be used to overcome adversity of many kinds.


Each of us has a unique view through which we see the world. Shaped by our experiences, culture, and familial identity, this view forms our beliefs, values, and way of life. A New View Film Series will journey outside everyday life to explore new worldviews through the screening of six films. Each screening will be followed by a discussion with the audience.
