Big Sonia


2017 | 93 minutes | Rated NR

This documentary made big waves at SIFF 2017. It’s about the death of a mall (or shopping center) and the life of one of its occupants, a 91-year-old Holocaust survivor. She is a tailor, she has lots of stories to share, she is served an eviction notice. Her space is small and packed with clothes and memories. Big Sonia is clearly the kind of documentary that goes for your soul. Sonia has a vivid memory of the murders at the death camps; she can recall how her mother was killed in a gas chamber. This is life. It can endure the horror, the horror.
