From a graffiti artist speaking out against domestic violence in the favelas of Brazil to a dancer rehabilitating sex-trafficking survivors in India, LITTLE STONES profiles four women, each of whom are contributing a stone to the mosaic of the women’s movement through their art. These four artists show that the world is full of little stones waiting to be discovered.
This 87-minute documentary feature directed by EMMY® Award-winning filmmaker Sophia Kruz and cinematographer Meena Singh (‘Hollidaysburg’), with music by Sundance Composing Lab alumni Amritha Vaz, was produced over a period of 18 months in Senegal, Kenya, Brazil, Germany, India and USA.
The film and accompanying education initiative have been designed to raise awareness about global women’s rights issues, and to celebrate creative, entrepreneurial, and arts-therapy based solutions to the most pressing challenges facing women globally.
