ABOUT THE FILM:

Watch the trailer here

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. 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.

Directed and produced by EMMY® Award-winning filmmaker Sophia Kruz, Little Stones was filmed in Senegal, Kenya, Brazil, Germany, India and USA. The film won Best Foreign Documentary at the Female Eye Film Festival, Best Documentary at the Vail Film Festival, and an Award of Excellence from the Impact Docs Awards.

A panel with the filmmaker Sophia Kruz and local artist Luna Wanda Galdames will follow the screening.

Luna Wanda Galdames is an interdisciplinary indigenous artist from Chile now living in Winnipeg Manitoba. A primary focus of her work continues to be the human body and identity. As an immigrant to Canada she has been a participant and observer to how identity is attached to place, and her interest is in the results achieved by removing people/objects from specific spaces. She also founded the dream room project ( La sala de los sueños Inc) ) a Winnipeg-based, not-for-profit charitable organization helping children and youth heal from traumatic experiences through art by transforming bedrooms in homes, group homes, treatment centers, shelters and community based healing centers into hope-filled spaces

Content note: This film may be triggering to survivors of sexual violence. WHEAT Director Darci Adam is a registered Art and Expressive Arts Therapist with Masters' degrees in Drama and Educational Psychology (Counselling). She will be on site during the duration of the event. Individuals in crisis can call the Klinic Crisis Line at 204-786-8686. A list of low-cost or free counselling services can be found here.
