Sophia is an Emmy award winning documentary filmmaker. We spoke about her current project, which is a gorgeous film called Little Stones. The film follows four women whose lives are dedicated to empowering survivors of gender based violence and eradicating the atrocities of domestic violence, human trafficking, extreme poverty and female genital mutilation. These women are therapists, activists, missionaries, and entrepreneurs. Their tools – art.
Sophia started realizing success while still in college, and quickly became an effective professional. Hers is a story of courage, initiative, and purpose.
As for the title….
"I always feel the movement is a sort of mosaic. Each of us puts in one little stone.” —Alice Paul, Women’s Rights Activist
You can find out more about the project here: littlestones.org. There will also be an academic program around this project. I am introducing it to my kids’ school. Go ahead and be a copycat.
And here is her Ted talk. Watch that too.
