"Triumphant documentary... Rokhsareh Ghaem Magahmi's
absorbing portrait of a refugee in Iran is endlessly surprising...."
-Nigel M. Smith, The Guardian
 

sonita SONITA, which won both the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, tells the inspiring story of an 18-year-old Afghan refugee in Iran, Sonita Alizadeh, who claims Michael Jackson and Rihanna as her spiritual parents and dreams of becoming a big-name rapper. For the time being, her only fans are the other teenage girls in a Tehran shelter. And her family has a very different future planned for her: as a bride she's worth $9,000. This personal and joyful portrait of a powerful young artist highlights the rarely seen intricacies and shifting contrasts of Iranian society, and Sonita's courageous fight to address and end child marriage.
