“I always feel the movement is a sort of mosaic. Each of us puts in one little stone.” —Alice Paul, Women’s Rights Activist
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 directed by EMMY® Award-winning filmmaker Sophia Kruz and cinematographer Meena Singh (Hollidaysburg, 20 Feet From Stardom), with music by Sundance Composing Lab alumni Amritha Vaz (500 Days of Summer), 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.
