Center Aisle Cinema: "Big Sonia"

Wednesday, April 17 › 6:30 p.m.

Columbia Public Library, Friends Room

In the last store in a defunct Kansas City shopping mall, 91-year-old Sonia Warshawski — great-grandmother, businesswoman, and Holocaust survivor — runs the tailor shop she’s owned for more than 30 years. As Sonia is served an eviction notice and the specter of retirement looms, she revisits her harrowing past as a refugee and witness to genocide. A poignant story of generational trauma and healing, "Big Sonia" also offers a laugh-out-loud-funny portrait of the power of love to triumph over bigotry, and the power of truth-telling to heal us all. Directed by Leah Warshawski and Todd Soliday. (2016, not rated, 93 min.)

Registration: Not required.
