Big Sonia

Starring: Sonia Warshawski, SuEllen Fried, Caroline Kennedy Director: Todd Soliday, Leah Warshawski Genre(s): Documentary, Family, History Rating: NR

**Following the film there will be a post show conversation led by Rabbi Barbara Block from Temple Israel.** 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.
