Closing Night: Big Sonia

Thursday, February 22
7pm at the 20th Century

After an eviction notice threatens the tailor shop she’s owned for more than 30 years, 91-year-old businesswoman and Holocaust survivor Sonia Warshawski faces the specter of retirement, prompting her to revisit her past as a refugee and witness to genocide. This poignant documentary offers a humorous portrait of love’s triumph over bigotry, and the healing power of truth-telling. See the trailer here!

Special Feature: Short film screening of Spring Chicken by Tamir Elterman.

Post-film discussion with Caroline Kennedy, cast member of the documentary, and founder and CEO of Empower: Educate & Inspire.

In partnership with AgeWell Cincinnati and Holocaust & Humanity Center.
