Big Sonia is a tiny 91-year-old Jewish tailor who's spent decades speaking in schools and prisons of her life during the Holocaust. This eponymous documentary—given awards by the AARP and the Napa Valley Film Festival—follows Sonia as she struggles to resign herself to retirement. Letters from Baghdad tells the story of Gertrude Bell, a woman of colonial Britain who influenced the fate of Iraq in the time of T.E. Lawrence, yet is largely forgotten today. Both films are presented by Cascadia International Women's Film Festival.
