Winner of the 2016 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award for World Cinema Documentary, Sonita is about a determined and animated Afghan teen, living in Tehran, who dreams of being a famous rapper. But in Iran the government doesn’t let girls sing solo – and in her Afghan home she is expected to marry. Director Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami ends up getting personally involved in the twists and turns of Sonita’s story.
