On Thursday, March 22, 2018, the Zonta Club of Sault Ste. Marie Area is bringing EMMY Award-winning filmmaker, Sophia Kruz, to Sault Ste. Marie for a public screening of her recent documentary, Little Stones.

This is part of celebrations for the 40 years Zonta has been involved in service projects in our community.

LITTLE STONES weaves together the personal stories of four women artists who dedicate their lives to empowering women and survivors of gender-based violence.

With their unique art forms, the artists express and help eradicate the atrocities of domestic violence, human trafficking, extreme poverty and female genital mutilation.

The film has been screened at numerous film festivals and is the winner of numerous awards including Best Documentary Vail Festival 2017 and Best Foreign Documentary at the 2017 Female Eye Festival.

Among future screenings, Sophia Kruz and Little Stones will be a part of United Nations Commission on the Status of Women on March 14 in New York.

Marie Area. “We have had excellent speakers over the years like Sally Armstrong, Michelle Audette and Margaret Trudeau; Sophia Kruz will be a dynamic addition to that past line-up.”
