Big Sonia

Campaigns / Consulting

In the last store in a defunct shopping mall, 92-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.

In conjunction with its theatrical release, Film Sprout coordinated more than 100 screenings of Big Sonia in an 10-month tour launching in Spring 2017.
